About the Flare Songbird Secure Code Assessment

The primary goal of this evaluation was to ensure the continued robustness of the network's security features, safeguarding the network's integrity and maintaining the overall robustness of the codebase. The reviewed update brings several enhancements to the Flare codebase, with the primary objective of integrating Songbird and Coston (its test network). These changes encompass the integration of genesis data, staking weights, block times, validators, fork dates, and gas limits, among others.

After a thorough review, FYEO concluded that the security aspects of the Flare network remain robust and unaffected by the recent updates. Users can confidently interact with the network, assured that their assets are well-protected. The commitment to security exhibited by the development team is commendable, and we appreciate the ongoing efforts to prioritize the safeguarding of network users.

The FYEO Process

When FYEO performs an assessment, we focus on the code committed at a specific time when the code base is feature complete. 

Our goal is to give our clients the following:

  • A better understanding of its security posture and help them identify current and future risks in its deployed chain & contract infrastructure.

  • An opinion on what security measures are in place regarding maturity, adequacy, and efficiency.

  • Identify potential issues, including loss of funds scenarios, and include improvement recommendations based on the result of our assessment.

  • Give the development team a better understanding of writing and maintaining more secure code. The incremental increase of security is part of the overall increased quality of the project.

Findings and Report

During the security assessment, we uncovered:

  • 1 finding with an INFORMATIONAL severity rating.

Once notified, the Flare team was quick to address and remediate these findings. You can find a public version of the report available below.
