xChain gets Stronger, Safer, and more Secure

xChain continues to get more secure with Wormhole’s new and innovative measures in place to ensure safe movement. Here are just a few.

The Guardians

Before any Wormhole transaction can be completed, it must pass through multiple Guardians, each of whom conducts their own independent validation process prior to verifying and validating that transaction.

The Guardians

Proven Tech

Wormhole runs on the same cryptographic primitives as Ethereum. We implement a multi-sig approach, whereby 19 Guardians - via a proof of authority of their private key - independently sign messages, but largely distrust each other. Guardians are spread across the globe, and each has their own set of operational security requirements, making it nearly impossible to compromise.

Transactions require 2/3+ consensus

Upgrades require 2/3+ consensus

Always open source

Building in the open hardens you in a way that nothing else does. We believe in the power of transparency and community and have been proudly sharing our progress, patterns, and process since July, 2020. It is open to any and everyone to contribute and improve upon.

Rigorous Auditing

While we regularly conduct independent audits, we continue to engage industry leading auditing firms to help function as an extension of our internal security program. These audits are not only critical to check our own work, but also serve to provide both transparency and confidence to users.

Bug Bounty Program

Bug Bounty Program

Bug bounty programs and the white-hat community at large are a strategic value add to our internal security program. This program allows any motivated white-hat in the world to review our code and receive multi-million-dollar incentives - including the hightest single payout in the industry - to responsibly report critical bugs in Wormhole.
