Ethereum Smart Contract Security Best Practices


Thank you for visiting the Smart Contract Security Best Practices. Please note that this resource is no longer actively maintained. Instead, we recommend visiting the Smart Contract Security Field Guide. The Smart Contract Security Field Guide is regularly updated and curated by the same security engineer who previously contributed to the Best Practices guide.

This document provides a baseline knowledge of security considerations for intermediate Solidity programmers. It is maintained by ConsenSys Diligence, with contributions from our friends in the broader Ethereum community.

Our amazing community has also provided translations in Chinese and Vietnamese.
