Corda Enterprise 4.8 - Architecture Security Report

Release Date: 12/15/2021

Blockchain technology is being rapidly adopted by enterprises to bring traceability and transparency to external business workflows. Considering that many of these workflows involve transactions and custody of value in the form of digital assets or other high-value data, cybersecurity attributes such as privacy, confidentiality, integrity, and availability certainly take center stage in the blockchain space.

This report from our Blockchain/Distributed Ledger Working Group aims to address the above concerns by examining the cybersecurity risks of the blockchain framework Corda Enterprise 4.8 when it is implemented as a permissioned enterprise network for a trade finance business in a cloud-based environment.

Then, in the accompanying Corda Enterprise 4.8 - Security Controls Checklist, we deliver a fully implementable security controls checklist for Corda 4.8 aligned with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

Key Takeaways:
  • An overview of how a Corda 4.8 Permissioned Blockchain Network was used to depict a simple transaction within a trade finance workflow
  • The steps and methodology used to identify Corda 4.8 security risks
  • The results of a Corda 4.8 threat analysis, how to mitigate the discovered risks, and recommendations for a risk-based incident response strategy
  • Cryptography module recommendations for a Corda 4.8 Permissioned Network
