Hyperledger Fabric 2.0 Architecture Security Report

Release Date: 06/28/2021

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.

In this report, we examine the security of the blockchain framework Hyperledger Fabric 2.0. First, we identified the cybersecurity risks of implementing Hyperledger Fabric 2.0’s architecture as a permissioned blockchain enterprise network for a trade finance business in a cloud-based environment. Then, in the accompanying Hyperledger Fabric 2.0 Security Controls Checklist, we delivered a fully implementable security controls checklist aligned with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

Key Takeaways:
  • An overview of how a Hyperledger Fabric 2.0 permissioned blockchain network was used to depict a simple transaction within a trade finance workflow
  • The steps and method used in the Fabric 2.0 risk identification process
  • The results of a threat evaluation and analysis
  • Cryptography module recommendations for a Fabric 2.0 permissioned network
