Two new vulnerabilities have been identified and publicly disclosed today about certain open source Threshold Signature Schemes used in many MPC wallets.
Blockdaemon’s cryptography and security teams have reviewed both the BitForge and TSSHOCK vulnerabilities and confirmed that neither apply to Blockdaemon’s Institutional Wallet or Advanced MPC technology implementations.
Book a call for your very own demo of Blockdaemon Institutional Wallet™, or read on to get a closer look at what’s new.
The identified vulnerabilities have been associated with specific implementations of GG18, and GG20 algorithms (originating from the Gennaro and Goldfeder paper, defining a protocol that implements homomorphic encryption and zero-knowledge proofs) and the Lindell17 algorithm used in certain hosted wallet services. Blockdaemon does not use these libraries or algorithms in our Advanced MPC technology and a review of our algorithms confirms that none of these vulnerabilities apply to Blockdaemon’s MPC implementations.
