The purpose of the Covesting’s Cyber-security framework is to ensure that there are strict measures and practices in place to protect our software solutions against any eventualities and threats. We are conducting periodical stress tests and security audits to ensure compliance with the strictest security standards.
Digital Asset Security
Offline wallet system (Cold storage) provides an important security measure against hacking, theft or loss. Asset transfers from the Cold storage require actions of multiple employees. All private keys are stored in safe deposit boxes and vaults distributed geographically.
The hot wallet keys are generated, stored and managed in HSM (hardware security modules) serviced by Azure Key Vault. HSM’s hardware has been evaluated according to FIPS publication 140-2 with a rating of Level 2. Learn more
