Release Date: 04/13/2021
Experts have identified crypto-asset exchanges as a major pain point of crypto security. Exchanges are platforms that mediate crypto-asset transactions between entities. There are several types of attacks that are successful against exchanges. In this document, we give an overview of these attacks, describe an exchange security reference architecture, and then provide a detailed list of crypto-asset exchange security best practices, administrative controls, and physical controls. This is part of an ongoing project by the Blockchain/Distributed Ledger Working Group.
