Our Focus

The EEA EthTrust Security Levels Working Group specifies "EEA EthTrust Certification" a set of requirements for security audits of Ethereum smart contracts to ensure an industry-wide level of quality for security audits.

NOW IS THE TIME TO REVIEW: The Working Group expects to request publication at the end of July. Review NOW can result in changes, but reviews sent soon will have to wait until the next version is published.

The Working Group develops a technical standard for certification of smart contracts. This provides three levels of certification that give progressively stronger reassurance about the security properties of a smart contract or set of contracts intended to be deployed on an Ethereum blockchain.

EthTrust certification specifies minimum standards that security audits should meet. Security auditors will generally offer review and additional services beyond the common base required by the EthTrust Security Levels.


Documents in Progress

The Editor's drafts of the specification are publicly available. They are usually updated around the end of each week.
