FP Complete Development specialists conducted comprehensive review of Hedera’s code and technical documentation
Zug, Switzerland – February 9, 2021 – As part of its goal to deliver transparency to the development community, Hedera Hashgraph, the enterprise-grade public distributed ledger, engaged FP Complete, an IT engineering specialist, to perform an independent audit of the engineering work by Hedera’s development team on the Hedera platform, including the new Hedera Token Service. The full completed audit reports can be found at https://www.hedera.com/fp-complete-hedera and https://www.hedera.com/fp-complete-hts.
Founded by former head of Microsoft's own in-house engineering tools, Aaron Contorer, FP Complete is the world's leading supplier of commercial-grade tools and engineering for Java -- the programming language used to build Hedera’s distributed ledger protocol. FP Complete performed a code review to examine the quality of the Hedera software, with a focus on robustness, security and auditability.
FP Complete also completed a review of Hedera’s code and technical documentation, enabling the development team to use this ongoing work to optimize the engineering methods, tools, and coding standards used to implement the Hedera network. The publication of these results demonstrates the company’s commitment to technical rigor and transparency.
Dr. Leemon Baird, co-founder and Chief Scientist of Hedera Hashgraph, comments: “These third-party audits by FP Complete illustrate our commitment to high-quality engineering, project transparency, and a rigorous and independent auditing process. We are pleased to be able to publish these audit results today, and look forward to sharing additional audit findings as they are completed in the future.”
Aaron Contorer, CEO of FP Complete, comments: "Hedera Hashgraph prudently engaged FP Complete for an independent third-party audit of the Hedera platform and services, to ensure the code base is as secure, stable and robust as possible. Our highly experienced development team has leveraged their expertise in continuous integration, engineering process management, Java engineering, and secure scalable cloud systems to deliver on these initial audits and will continue to provide this same level of rigor to future audits.”
