Orion Protocol, the DeFi platform building B2B and B2C solutions on the most advanced liquidity aggregator ever developed, offers the first singular, non-custodial, gateway to crypto by aggregating the liquidity of every centralized exchange, decentralized exchange, and liquidity pool in the market.
CertiK is a technology-led blockchain security company built to prove the security and correctness of smart contracts and blockchain protocols. CertiK’s mission of every audit is to apply different approaches and detection methods, ranging from manual, static, and dynamic analyses to ensure that the project is checked against known attacks and potential vulnerabilities.
CertiK leverages a team of seasoned engineers and security auditors to apply testing edge testing and verification methods on each project, contributing to a more secure and robust software system.
The leading auditing firm has serviced hundreds of clients with high-quality auditing and consulting services, ranging from Binance, Tera, Kava, and e-Money, to Fetch.ai, Akropolis, Bancor, Shapeshift, and Blockstack, to mention a few.
CertiK is underway with a full-scale security audit, including VAPT of the smart contracts, and Substrate modules involved in the development and launch of Orion Protocol’s flagship product, Orion Terminal, ahead of its Main Net launch this quarter.
Orion Terminal’s private mainnet is being rigorously audited to ensure functionality, automation integrity, and overall security optimization prior to the onboarding of inaugural brokers.
Furthermore, any open-source software on the respective brokers’ side will be also fully audited in addition to Orion Protocol’s domestic code to ensure the stability of the Terminal’s network and assure users that everything connected to Orion Protocol’s tools, including but not limited to Orion Terminal, is safe to use under all circumstances.
Every project built on Orion Protocol will be referred to CertiK for security auditing, improving the integrity of Orion Protocol’s broader ecosystem, making sure they are in accordance with modern security standards, as well as in a position to flawlessly interact with Orion smart contracts.
Besides being the official security partner for Orion Protocol, we have joined forces with CertiK in order to create an automatic safety verification tool to assess third party products interacting with Orion Protocol’s codebase in real-time.
“Orion Protocol is open-source, to facilitate others seeking to use and build on the protocol, a developer kit will be launched to expand protocol use. We expect CertiK’s solution to be of great importance in speeding up the on-boarding process of new exchanges and/or projects trying to build on Orion Protocol, including apps for investment, trading bots, and payment gateways via a decentralized marketplace.” - Alexey Koloskov, CEO + CoFounder of Orion Protocol
Last but not least, to stamp the beginning of a strong and healthy relationship, CertiK will be providing the Orion Protocol team with additional information, commentary, and consultation to ensure Orion Terminal’s and other native services’ security is always ahead of the trending curve.
“Security is undeniably Orion Protocol’s top priority and we’re happy they’re loud about it. CertiK’s top-shelf engineers are working hard to make sure Orion Protocol gets the best out of our partnership” - Yvan Nasr, Global Head of Professional Services at CertiK
The official audit report is expected to be published during the Orion Terminal mainnet launch.
