OpenSSL and Monero Bulletproofs Audits are Underway!

We have confirmed that QuarksLab has began the work of reviewing OpenSSL 1.1.1 (the current beta version that implements TLS 1.3, a huge cryptography update.) They are currently working on TLS 1.3 and the updated random number generator to search for biases or other flaws.

QuarksLab is also currently working on Monero Bulletproofs to verify that the cryptography of the new proofs system is secure and working as intended. Bulletproofs promises to reduce transaction sizes in Monero by up to 90%, significantly reducing fees and the size of the blockchain itself.

More information will be available in the coming weeks, as we publicly release the results!
