Smart contracts are a revolutionary aspect of blockchain technology that help us enforce an agreement between parties involved in transactions, transferring value and information without the presence of a third-party. Smart contracts scale well and provide faster solutions as they remove third parties traditionally involved in transactions. The main challenge is that smart contracts are not inherently secure and many security issues have taken place, some resulting in massive financial losses. In one incident (the "DAO" hack), the attacker managed to retrieve approx. 3.6 million Ether. This presentation will go through all known smart contract application vulnerabilities and discuss mitigations as well as best security practices for developing secure smart contracts.
