NRI SecureTechnologies has introduced a security assessment service in Japan for systems and services which use blockchain technology.
Dubbed Blockchain Assessment, the service will be launched for smart contracts. In order to identify vulnerabilities, the service will conduct assessment from the dual perspectives of static analysis and dynamic analysis.
In the future, the company intends to add more assessment menus for other constituent elements of the blockchain. Currently, the service is available in only English and Japanese language.
NRI SecureTechnologies, a subsidiary of Nomura Research Institute, noted that a cyberattack carried out on any vulnerable programs could lead to major threats or even to actual damage by causing services to behave differently than originally intended, particularly when it comes to smart contracts.
