1. Content Review

First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to guests in the security field such as SlowMist, CertiK, WTF Academy, OneKey, BlockSec and GoPlus for their joint support for this series of content. We started with the most real cases happening around users and sorted out the risk types, advanced tools, safety rules, protection suggestions, etc. in different scenarios.

Looking back at the entire series, it has covered 6 popular scenarios in the field of cryptographic security, including private key security, MEME transaction security, money laundering security, device security, and DeFi security. While aiming to strengthen user security education, it also hopes to help users learn to protect their private keys and wallet asset security from themselves. Users can read on demand:

In general, current security incidents are characterized by diversity, concealment, and complexity, but most of them are caused by users having their private keys or mnemonics stolen or induced to enter, such as fake airdrops, fake websites, fake customer service, etc. Therefore, you must always be vigilant, do not easily click on unfamiliar links, leak information to strangers, enter unfamiliar websites, etc., and do not easily leak your private keys and mnemonics.

Please remember: in the encrypted world, safety comes first.

2. Latest security updates of OKX Wallet

Secondly, as a self-hosted wallet, the private keys and assets of the OKX Web3 wallet are completely controlled by the user. The OKX Web3 wallet will protect the security and privacy of users 24/7. So we will share some OKX Web3 wallet security updates with you in the final chapter.

Currently, OKX Web3 wallet has officially launched the Security Center, which users can access by clicking the relevant banner on the Web3 wallet webpage, or by clicking: source=gtm. The center covers five major aspects, including code open source, multi-party audit, and bug bounty program, and supports public verification by users, aiming to create a safer Web3 ecosystem.

First, in terms of multi-party auditing, the security standards of OKX Web3 Wallet have been tested and verified by third-party security auditing companies. The audit reports of SlowMist and Certik are now public and users can view them at any time. In the future, OKX Web3 Wallet will continue to be regularly audited by reputable security auditing companies to ensure asset security.

Second, in terms of open source code, the OKX Web3 wallet has completed the open source of its core code, including mnemonics, private keys, MPC and other core algorithms, which have been widely verified by the technical community. The implementation details are open to users for free viewing and auditing on GitHub, making it more open and transparent.

Third, in terms of intercepting third-party risks, the OKX Web3 wallet can help users filter high-risk tokens and domain names and protect their assets from threats by providing powerful security monitoring. So far, it has intercepted 153K+ malicious domain names, 1.5M+ similar domain names, 1.28M+ high-risk tokens, and 153K+ high-risk transactions for users.

Fourth, the OKX Web3 wallet has also launched a bug bounty program to encourage users and developers to submit service errors and security vulnerabilities, and has prepared generous bug bounties to work with users to build wallet security.

While redefining the wallet experience, the OKX Web3 wallet protects the security of users assets and strives to protect users so that they can embark on their on-chain exploration journey more safely.

3. 7 x 24 hours security escort

As the industrys leading one-stop Web3 portal, OKX Web3 Wallet provides 24/7 security protection for user assets, such as:

1. In terms of private key security

To ensure the security of the users wallet private key, the entire underlying system of the OKX Web3 wallet is not connected to the Internet. The users mnemonic and private key related information are all encrypted and stored locally on the users device. The relevant SDK is also open source and has been widely verified by the technical community, making it more open and transparent. In addition, the OKX Web3 wallet has also conducted strict security audits through cooperation with well-known security organizations such as SlowMist.

In addition, in order to better protect our users, the OKX Web3 security team has provided strong security protection for private key management and is continuously iterating and upgrading. Here is a brief sharing:

1) Two-factor encryption. Currently, most wallets usually use a password to encrypt the mnemonic and save the encrypted content locally. However, if the user is infected with a Trojan virus, the Trojan will scan the encrypted content and monitor the password entered by the user. If the scammer monitors it, the encrypted content can be decrypted to obtain the users mnemonic. In the future, the OKX Web3 wallet will use a two-factor method to encrypt the mnemonic. Even if the scammer obtains the users password through the Trojan, he will not be able to decrypt the encrypted content.

2) Private key copying security. Most Trojans will steal information from the users clipboard when the user copies the private key, resulting in the leakage of the users private key. We plan to help users reduce the risk of private key information theft by increasing the security of the users private key copying process, such as copying part of the private key and clearing the clipboard information in time.

2. At the level of APP data security

OKX Web3 Wallet uses a variety of methods to reinforce the App, including but not limited to algorithm obfuscation, logic obfuscation, code integrity detection, system library integrity detection, application tamper-proofing, and environmental security detection. These methods minimize the probability of users being attacked by hackers when using the App. At the same time, they can also prevent the black industry from repackaging our App to the greatest extent, reducing the probability of downloading fake Apps.

In addition, in terms of Web3 wallet data security, we use the most advanced hardware security technology and chip-level encryption to encrypt sensitive data in the wallet. The encrypted data is bound to the device chip. If the encrypted data is stolen, no one can decrypt it.

3. At the level of third-party testing

We provide many security mechanisms to protect user funds:

1) Risky domain name detection: When a user accesses a DAPP, the OKX Web3 wallet will perform detection and analysis at the domain name level. If the user accesses a malicious DAPP, it will be intercepted or reminded to prevent the user from being deceived.

2) Pixiupan token detection: OKX Web3 wallet supports comprehensive Pixiupan token detection capabilities, actively blocking Pixiupan tokens in the wallet to prevent users from trying to interact with Pixiupan tokens.

3) Address tag library: OKX Web3 wallet provides a rich and complete address tag library. When users interact with suspicious addresses, OKX Web3 wallet will give timely warnings.

4) Transaction pre-execution: Before a user submits any transaction, the OKX Web3 wallet will simulate the transaction and display the asset and authorization change results for the user’s reference. The user can judge whether the result meets expectations based on the result, so as to decide whether to continue submitting the transaction.

4. Security is an eternal topic in the encryption industry

In the digital age, the crypto industry, as an emerging and rapidly developing field, is increasingly attracting global attention. However, with the widespread application of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, various security issues cannot be ignored. Although blockchain technology provides high security for cryptocurrency, the security of the wallet itself is affected by many factors, such as private key security, phishing, or user errors leading to private key leakage.

The decentralized nature of Web3 wallets enables users to fully control their digital assets without relying on any central agency or third-party services. However, this also means that users need to bear the responsibility for the security of their assets. Users should fully realize the importance of wallet and asset security and take effective measures to ensure it.

A secure and reliable Web3 wallet can enhance users trust in the crypto industry. With the continuous development of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, users have an increasingly strong demand for asset security. As a platform or wallet, we should continue to make efforts in technological innovation, security education and other aspects to provide users with a safe and convenient asset management platform, and provide solid security guarantees for the healthy development of the crypto industry.

Safety is no small matter, it concerns you and me.
