Cars are increasingly connected and complex. Although fully autonomous vehicles are still a long way off, chances are your car already has advanced driver assistance systems that control activities such as adaptive cruise control, lane guidance and active braking. .

Andy Pan

Andy is the Senior Manager of Security Solutions for the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. He is a seasoned product marketing executive with over 15 years of experience building and promoting software services in the US and Asia.

Developers are changing their approach to automotive safety and security with these scalable and connected hardware and software features.

In a world of connected automobiles, considering security is as important as designing for physical security.

If anything demonstrates that every company is a software company, it’s the evolution of automotive manufacturing. As cars become more automated and access over-the-air updates, they naturally become more connected, which means they present a new attack surface for hackers. An attack can take the form of stealing key information from a keyless car system to enable a break-in, running a chip in test or debug mode to gain system privileges, or hacking an infotainment system with a virus via a mobile handset. Regardless of the attack approach, if a system is easily hacked, it is simply dangerous.

Advanced driver assistance systems are partitioned into different chips, called systems on chip (SoC). These chips connect sensors to actuators through high-performance interfaces and electronic controllers (ECUs). As the number of sensors integrated into automotive systems increases to enable new capabilities, integrating safety and quality into all stages of the design lifecycle becomes an integral part. Automotive design requirements are changing, and in the future, safety and security must be inseparable considerations for automotive development.

Forging a Safe Path to Autonomous Vehicles

Most vehicles with advanced driver assistance systems currently operate at level 2, partial automation, which means that even though the vehicle can perform certain tasks, the human operator can still take control at any time. Systems like these rely on sensor systems that can include lidarradar, ultrasound, infrared and cameras.

This level of intelligence requires a remarkable amount of processing power that must take place locally or be distributed within the vehicle itself. This means that connecting the vehicle only to the cloud is not a favorable option, as any delay between sending and receiving information can endanger the safety of passengers in motion, as well as leaving vehicles exposed to potential interference. .

All of this has major implications for the future of secure automotive design. In accordance with the ISO 26262 A functional safety standard for production vehicles, all underlying hardware and software must have built-in functional safety to minimize the risk of failure – and potential disaster. If that’s not enough, an equally high level of security is essential for the automotive system to work as intended.

Opaque box test for automatic safety and security

While safety has always been a key consideration in automotive design, as the industry evolves to rely on automated systems, safety must go hand in hand with safety. The combination of the two is becoming a key design criteria for teams around the world.

Software developers have long relied on “transparent box” tools and services such as static application security testing (SAST) and composition analysis software (SCA) to address security and quality flaws on the coding side.

Transparent box testing tools identify bugs and security risks in proprietary source code, third-party binaries, and open source dependencies, as well as runtime vulnerabilities in applications, APIs, protocols, and containers. As crucial as these tests are, they aren’t enough when you’re dealing with an attack surface as large as those found in advanced driver assistance systems.

That’s why you also need an “opaque box” test. Opaque box testing involves testing a system without having any prior knowledge of its inner workings. A tester provides input and observes the output generated by the system under test. This helps identify how the system responds to expected and unexpected user actions, the kind that malicious actors might use.

Opaque box tools like dynamic application security testing (DAST) and fuzz test can help your team ensure that the software code you’ve secured from the inside can’t be hacked from the outside.

Fuzzing is a particularly useful software testing technique because it tests your code by entering invalid, unexpected, or malformed data. The program is then monitored for exceptions such as crashes or failing embed code assertions. Because fuzzing tests without access to the source code itself, it provides the best visibility into how an attacker might attempt to break into your systems. A rigorously tested fuzz network element is hardened against a wide range of security threats.

Use Case: Denial of Service Vulnerabilities in Zephyr Bluetooth LE Stack

A recent Synopsys Cybersecurity Research Center Vulnerability Report covered eight vulnerabilities discovered in the Bluetooth LE link layer and L2CAP implementation in Zephyr’s Bluetooth LE controller.

Since Bluetooth controls many of the newest automotive communication and entertainment systems, this suite of vulnerabilities could have big implications for driver safety.

All reported vulnerabilities can be triggered from Bluetooth LE range. Triggering the vulnerability does not require authentication or encryption. The only requirement is that the device is in advertising mode and accepting connections.

Vulnerabilities can be divided into three high-level categories.

  • Freeze: The vulnerability allows an attacker to remotely cause a freeze or assertion failure on a target device by sending malformed input. In the case of a freeze, the behavior of a target device depends on whether assertions are enabled and whether the error handler exists for fatal errors. It is common for the device to reboot itself in the event of a hardware failure. An attacker could use it to reboot the device wirelessly with a single packet when exploiting other vulnerabilities. Under certain circumstances, freezing may result in remote code execution.
  • Dead end: Some of the vulnerabilities can lead to a situation where the target device misbehaves in a way that prevents other devices from connecting to it. The target must be restarted to return to the normal state. Restarting a moving vehicle could endanger drivers and passengers.
  • Information leak: This vulnerability allows an attacker to gain access to potentially confidential information such as encryption keys or memory layout information. This type of vulnerability can also be used when an attacker attempts to bypass mitigation techniques such as address space layout randomization, which is not present in Zephyr.

These vulnerabilities were discovered when Synopsys performed tests on its own products. Since Zephyr’s Bluetooth LE controller is used as part of the Synopsys Defense Bluetooth LE fuzzing solution, the lowest layers of Zephyr’s Bluetooth LE stack were fuzz tested using the Defensics Bluetooth LE test suites. So here we have an example of opaque box fuzz test surface vulnerabilities that could not have been detected using transparent box test methods.

Summary

The automotive industry is transforming on many levels, but the development of smarter and safer cars is perhaps the most remarkable. Teams responsible for today’s and tomorrow’s automotive applications will need to think more holistically to consider both safety and security.

Synopsys can help you with a full suite of SAST, SCA, DAST, and fuzzing tools to ensure that the software these vehicles rely on is as safe and secure as the physical security features that have been built into the automotive design. . This becomes even more crucial as designers and developers strive to bring fully autonomous vehicles to a road near you.

Through the President’s Management Program Vision, the administration has emphasized customer service in federal government agencies. Fortunately, as agencies modernize their information technology (IT), they can use technology solutions like artificial intelligence (AI) and automation to transform the customer experience.

MeriTalk spoke with James Bench, Principal at Maximus, and John Mandell, Managing Director of the National Security Practice at Maximus, to find out how technology can empower federal agencies — especially those with a security focus. national – a customer service advantage.

MeriTalk: The vision of the President’s management program is to make customer service a government-wide priority. So far, what steps do you see federal agencies taking to chart the customer journey and improve the customer experience?

James bench: We are seeing more of an adoption of design-based thinking. Some agencies employ UI/UX experts to perform human-centered design, case studies, and usability testing. By implementing human-centered design, we no longer need a two-page Office of Management and Budget (OMB) form and 10-page instructions to collect the right data. . Experiences become intuitive, similar to commercial customer experiences.

John Mandel: Modernization can create a foundation to improve the user experience and build that customer-centric design – which is a major goal for government today. Agencies need to develop their vision for the customer experience, then ensure it’s embedded in the discovery and design phases as well as throughout software development and deployment.

MeriTalk: We tend to think of modernization in terms of a big fix, but it’s more nuanced than that. The IT operating plane, for example, connects data, technology, solutions, and cybersecurity with the goal of delivering modern government. What are the elements of a successful modernization process?

Mandel: If customers are just beginning the journey, it’s important to understand their needs and vision for modernizing IT systems. One of the fundamental elements of modernization is the cloud. It is a new, modern architecture that enables flexible and agile development methods, automated deployment, release management, and integrated security and monitoring. Agencies also need quality data that is readily available. Data sharing and governance help extend agency data and leverage it for advanced analytics.

MeriTalk: Overall, how is the emerging technology landscape changing and impacting federal agency modernization efforts?

Bench: Modernizing government applications often means taking a monolithic application across multiple servers and breaking them down into smaller functional components. Implementing microservices is a big part of modernization. Agencies need a technology stack that allows them to be more agile in deploying and updating applications. It also means that agencies don’t have to wait five years to see the result of a modernization effort. Instead, they can roll out apps incrementally and replace monolithic functionality.

Automation is also a game changer. It enables automatic recovery in the event of a service outage, creating multiple layers of automatic remediation before someone has to be called in at 3 a.m. to fix an outage. It is especially valuable around infrastructure. Using technologies that automate manual administration processes across cloud and on-premises infrastructure is a huge benefit to staff. Automation can support and provision resources, and efficiently deploy security patches to keep the environment safe.

Mandel: I agree with James that automation plays a huge role in modernization as agencies realize they can be more efficient in their processes and interactions with clients. Agencies are identifying opportunities to use technologies such as robotic process automation and AI, and they are using data science and visualization to generate new insights. They are looking to companies like Maximus to pilot automation at federal missions. We have provided hyper automation solutions to several Department of Homeland Security (DHS) customers, for example.

MeriTalk: What role does AI play in modernization? How can AI and machine learning (ML) transform the way agencies manage operations and provide customer service?

Bench: AI and ML models have become part of everyone’s daily life, even if many people don’t realize it. Maximus helps agencies put AI to work in a variety of ways. For example, in large contact centers, we are building chatbots that can do more than give a simple answer to a simple question. They can generate events, initiate tickets that will be dealt with later, and even manage simple features for account management.

AI is also useful for adjudication, the process of evaluating someone’s application for a government program or service. Depending on how much information they need, the assessor approves or declines and moves on to the next step.

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), for example, has a huge backlog to process and uses ML models to adjudicate green card applications. If the data is verified, the ML can quickly process 70% of the application without human intervention. The remaining 30% would still have to be processed manually.

Maximus also works with USCIS to manage identities: who is the person and how do you connect the dots with each engagement of that person with the United States? Using ML to compile all this data and reconcile it standardizes and speeds up the adjudication process.

MeriTalk: In all agencies there is often a need for collaboration, sharing and corporate support. Where do you see progress in this area and how is modernization helping?

Mandel: Modernization does not happen within a single agency; several agencies must work together for a common mission. With Immigration and Border Protection, for example, digital solutions can add value to that mission, enabling information sharing between USCIS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Customs and borders. This has an impact on the work being done on the southern border and on the President’s immigration program.

Collaboration is also essential for cybersecurity. When cyber experts find indicators of an attack, they must prevent it and share those findings with other agencies. Maximus enables this with DHS as well as in federal health and financial services. One of our best practices is to communicate between agencies; It’s not always an easy task, but we’ve made it a repeatable skill set.

MeriTalk: Can you talk about Maximus’ modernization approach around DevSecOps and how it enables customers to modernize faster with less risk?

Bench: Maximus consults and provides services that the government consumes. Cloud adoption and automation are built into our stack. In the typical situation, you have to weave different sets of tools together to achieve the desired result. Whenever you do, you need a wide variety of expertise to put all those pieces together. Agencies don’t always have all that talent.

Maximus has developed technology that places a layer of abstraction on top of this complex technology. This lets you do some basic setup, and it will build everything for you. We do this ourselves to be efficient and ensure process standards and quality are consistent across everything deployed. We are beginning to take this set of knowledge and skills, which was developed for Maximus itself, and use it in our federal consulting services.

MeriTalk: How does Maximus keep the customer experience front and center, and how does that set Maximus apart?

Mandel: Maximus focuses on customer impact and end game. What are the results to support the mission? Whose constituents do they serve? What are the results that will benefit citizens?

We take a solution consulting approach to our user experience and design process. As we build, we want the most intuitive, user-centric design, and we’ll add emerging technologies that help that user fulfill their mission. We help agencies bridge that gap so it’s not just about the front-end, but the holistic approach to the business.

From launch call to implementation, we ask questions from a usability and user perspective. We are not tied to any set of solutions; we are always evaluating what new technologies could be introduced.

MeriTalk: Based on your experience with DHS, what does the future of IT modernization look like in national security organizations?

Mandel: We always help agencies look to the future. DHS, for example, is one of the most technologically advanced departments, and it will only accelerate. We see a real focus on improving the digital experience for internal and external DHS users.

As DHS largely moves to the cloud in some areas, these areas will have the ability to modernize faster than others. For this reason, the future will be more modern not only in terms of user experience, but also in DHS’s ability to share information. DHS will be able to share information between federal partners and bring more transparency between national security agencies. DHS is able to ensure that it has the right data, as well as good governance around sharing that data with the appropriate parties such as law enforcement and the Department of State.

Introducing new offerings for Microsoft Defender Security Services

Microsoft launched three new enterprise-grade security products on Tuesday.

New products are Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence, Managing the Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface and Microsoft Sentinel Solution for SAP. All are now in the “general availability” stage of commercialization and available for production use by organizations.

The general availability of products may seem surprising. Microsoft seems to have ignored the announcement of the first previews, although previews of the finished products are now available to the public.

Both Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence and Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface Management emerged from Microsoft’s acquisition of RiskIQ, announced last year. RiskIQ was renowned at the time for assessing threats based on its enormous web analytics capabilities and offered complementary solutions to Microsoft’s own capabilities.

Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence
Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence is an enterprise service for organizations with security operations centers. It brings together “security signals” from Microsoft’s RiskIQ team, as well as the Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center and Microsoft 365 Defender security research teams.

These teams have different specialties, but in total they collect “more than 43 trillion signals” every day. They track “more than 35 ransomware families,” as well as “more than 250 nation states, cybercriminals, and other threat actors,” Microsoft said.

Microsoft uses its security intelligence in various products, but the Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence product is supposed to provide “direct access to real-time data.”

Microsoft already offers a “Microsoft Threat Experts – Experts on Demand” service offering, where organizations can tap into the expertise of Microsoft’s security teams. This service would be “complementary” with the Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence service, according to a spokesperson.

Organizations best use Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence (MDTI) through its portal, or they can use it with a security information and event management (SIEM) solution, such as Microsoft Sentinel.

“MDTI works best when combined with SIEM + XDR tools to allow for deeper analysis and integration,” the spokesperson explained via email. “Threat intelligence can be shared across products and MDTI can even create IT-related incidents within Sentinel.”

Microsoft sells Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence through its sales teams as a “standalone” product. “It’s not part of the E5 portfolio,” the spokesperson clarified.

A “fully functional” 30-day free trial of Microsoft Defender Threat Intelligence is available and there is also a “free community version with access to limited data and threat articles,” the spokesperson said.

Managing the Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface
Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface Management has been released. It promises to uncover vulnerabilities in Internet-connected software components used by organizations. It is an agentless scanning service that detects unmanaged components, sometimes referred to as “shadow IT” software.

Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface Management (MDEASM) is a subscription-based Microsoft Azure service that is billed daily per device, according to the spokesperson.

“MDEASM is an Azure service and billed based on the number of assets discovered and monitored,” the spokesperson explained.

Organizations access the Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface Management service through the Azure portal, but its management functionality also “requires a cloud security platform,” such as the Microsoft Defender for Cloud service.

Here is the characterization of the spokesperson for this purpose:

EASM is available in the Microsoft Azure portal and a customer’s subscription. It provides a comprehensive list of enterprise resources which can then be used in Defender for Cloud to bring them under management.

Microsoft is currently working to improve the use of the Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface Management service with SIEM and extended detection and response (XDR) tools.

“When the API and interflow integration becomes fully operational in the near future, this integration between SIEM + XDR will become much more powerful,” the spokesperson explained.

Microsoft offers a fully functional 30-day free trial of the Microsoft Defender External Attack Surface Management service. The service can be activated in the Azure portal.

Microsoft Sentinel Solution for SAP
The Microsoft Sentinel Solution for SAP service is also released. It allows organizations to monitor “all layers of the SAP system” and uncover possible “suspicious activities, including elevation of privileges, unauthorized changes, sensitive transactions, and suspicious data downloads,” according to the page. destination of Microsoft products.

The service works with SAP implementations hosted on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure, and it also works with SAP implementations hosted on an organization’s infrastructure. It uses an “SAP data connector” agent to collect log data for use in Microsoft Sentinel, according to the homepage:

The data connector is an agent, delivered as a Docker container, which is installed on a virtual machine, Kubernetes/AKS cluster or physical server and collects application logs from across the SAP system through the application interfaces SAP, NetWeaver RFC and SAPControl. The SAP data connector then sends these logs and data to Microsoft Sentinel for ongoing threat monitoring.

Microsoft is now offering a six-month free trial of the Microsoft Sentinel solution for SAP. It will begin billing for this service as a Microsoft Sentinel “add-on” product starting “February 1, 2023”.

Today, smartphones are more than just communication devices. They contain some of our most valuable information, including personal identifiers; financial details; location and health data; private and professional conversations; the use of the application and much more. Although this data may differ from user to user, some of it is definitely present on every smartphone user’s phone.
This evolution of smartphones has also made hackers realize that these devices can serve as an access point to users’ identity, finances, and personal accounts. Therefore, they increase their attacks on mobile devices through malware, phishing and other dangerous techniques. This is why it has become crucial to keep data on smartphones safe. SamsungVP and Chief Security Officer Dr. Seungwon Shin recently spoke about the company’s commitment to smartphone data security during a media roundtable.
“At Samsung, security is at the center of every decision we make, from the second we start planning a new product until the moment it hits the shelves. We champion openness, rather than keeping people locked in a closed ecosystem. Openness doesn’t put us at greater risk. It makes us stronger and provides the best and safest experience possible. And we know full well that the only way to to be open at work is to earn people’s trust. To keep them safe every step of the way by protecting what matters most to them and giving them full control over their privacy,” Shin said.
“Start with safety”
Shin said there can be no privacy without strong security. “The only way to truly protect users’ privacy is to make sure their data never gets into the wrong hands. That’s why everything we do is protect them and their information. And why we We are constantly innovating and collaborating with the companies and people we know and trust to add additional layers of security and provide the best possible protection,” added Shin.
He then explained how Samsung’s collaborations with various companies aim to enhance the digital experience of its users. “Samsung believes collaboration is strength and is leading the industry in creating a safe digital experience by partnering with trusted companies like Google, chipset makers and mobile operators to create the the highest possible security standards and ensuring that our users get security updates as quickly as possible,” he explained. For those unaware, Samsung now offers four generations of One UI and android Operating system upgrades for select Galaxy devices.
Knox, TEEgris and “safety for all”
Shin went on to explain how Samsung combines software and app security with device hardware. Leading by example, he talked about Samsung Knox’s security solution. “Know started as an enterprise security solution and quickly evolved into a holistic defense-grade security platform that provides true end-to-end protection throughout the lifecycle of our products, for consumers. and businesses,” he said. “Knox Safe provides an additional layer of protection for critical information such as biometric authenticators and cryptographic keys. It combines our Secure processor with a new secure memory chip to isolate sensitive data from the rest of the device, including its operating system, so it never falls into the wrong hands.” Shin also mentioned TEEgris, an operating system for security which the company says allows partners to use hardware cryptography, encryption, and access controls for a secure application experience.
Concluding the roundtable, Shin had an important message for Samsung device users: “Samsung’s responsibility to protect consumers doesn’t end once a device is in their hands. We put them in control of their data with the privacy dashboard that gives them full visibility into who has access to their data and how it is being used and let them share their personal information on their own terms with Private Share.” as final remarks.

For the week ending July 22, CRN takes a look at the companies that brought their “A” game to the channel.





The week ending July 22

Topping this week’s Came to Win list are Microsoft and Oracle for a collaborative effort that makes it easier for customers to use Oracle Database through the Azure cloud.

Also on this week’s list are solutions provider ePlus and security technology provider Huntress for making strategic acquisitions. Cisco Systems makes the shortlist for the launch of a new partnership opportunity around its Webex collaboration platform. And Google and cybersecurity provider Mandiant hit a key regulatory milestone on their way to closing their $5.4 billion acquisition deal.

Microsoft-Oracle Collaboration Creates “A Great Partner Opportunity”

Software giants Oracle and Microsoft have been longtime rivals, competing – sometimes fiercely – in broad areas of computing, including database software, ERP and CRM applications, and cloud platforms. .

So both vendors deserve kudos this week for announcing a new collaboration between them, the Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure. The fully managed service enables enterprise-class Oracle database services to be provisioned, accessed, and operated within Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), but launched and managed through Azure.

Users can run the Microsoft Power BI analysis tool against the Oracle database through the service. And there will be no charge for data transfer between OCI and Azure.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Oracle CTO Larry Ellison appeared together — virtually — at Microsoft’s Inspire 2022 conference to unveil the new offering.

Nadella said the new joint service creates “an excellent opportunity for our partners to help customers run their most critical Oracle applications and databases with Azure as they strive to accelerate their migration journeys to the cloud”.

ePlus expands cybersecurity reach with future acquisition of Com

Global solutions provider ePlus Technology took a big step this week to expand both its geographic reach and cybersecurity resources with its acquisition of Future Com, a provider of cybersecurity, cloud security and security consulting services based in Grapevine, Texas.

EPlus already generates half a billion dollars in annual revenue from security solutions and services, President and CEO Mark Marron told CRN. The acquisition of Future Com will provide ePlus with additional service professionals and other resources to double down on cybersecurity.

The acquisition also gives ePlus the ability to sell its own managed services and staffing capabilities to Future Com customers, according to Marron. And the acquisition offers Herndon, Va.-based ePlus the opportunity to expand its operations in Texas.

Huntress acquires curriculum from security training company

Staying on the subject of savvy acquisitions, managed security platform and threat intelligence technology provider Huntress this week acquired Atlanta-based startup Curricula, a provider of story-based security training for the employees.

The acquisition, priced at $22 million, comes as businesses and organizations grapple with the human element of cybersecurity, in addition to the technology component.

Curricula offers behavioral science-based security training and uses storytelling and animation to teach employees how to recognize, avoid, and thwart phishing and hacking schemes.

Huntress, based in Ellicott City, Maryland, will integrate Curricula’s training services into its broader line of cybersecurity offerings,

Cisco launches Webex Wholesale Partner Program with focus on SMBs

Cisco Systems is winning applause this week for its decision to offer its Webex collaboration platform as a managed service through a wholesale route to market for channel partners who serve SMB customers.

Webex has become a particularly popular offering since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic which forced many people to work from home and rely heavily on collaboration and video conferencing services.

The new Managed Services for Webex creates a new market option for service providers and MSP partners. The wholesale model uses a unique commercial agreement between Cisco and its partners and provides a self-service platform that partners can use to provide managed services for Webex.

Partners can also use the platform to create their own co-branded offers.

Google-Mandiant acquisition closer to completion after DOJ antitrust review ends

Google and Mandiant this week moved closer to completing Google’s $5.4 billion acquisition of the security superstar after the US Department of Justice effectively ended its antitrust review of the acquisition. provided without any objection to the agreement.

Mandiant revealed this week in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that on July 15, the DOJ granted early termination of the waiting period required under the Hart-Scott-Rodino antitrust law. .

Mandiant stated in the filing that the early termination of the waiting period satisfies one of the conditions to the completion of the acquisition. Mandiant said the two companies still expect the deal to close by the end of the year.

Google is acquiring Mandiant, a leading cybersecurity incident and response technology provider, to bolster its own security offerings.

Polygon Announces World’s First Zero-Knowledge (ZK) Scaling Solution Fully Compatible with Ethereum https://pjmagic.net/polygon-announces-worlds-first-zero-knowledge-zk-scaling-solution-fully-compatible-with-ethereum/ Wed, 20 Jul 2022 11:10:00 +0000 https://pjmagic.net/polygon-announces-worlds-first-zero-knowledge-zk-scaling-solution-fully-compatible-with-ethereum/ Polygon zkEVM is basically equivalent to the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) itself and takes full advantage of the entire Ethereum ecosystem.

Polygon zkEVM is basically equivalent to the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) itself and takes full advantage of the entire Ethereum ecosystem. EVM equivalence is different from EVM compatibility because it creates less friction for the user, removing the need for any kind of code modification or reimplementation.

Until recently, some of the greatest minds in Web3 thought this technology would take up to 10 years to materialize. This announcement represents a breakthrough in cryptographic research that enables developers to build the future of Web3.

Polygon zkEVM, which stands for Zero-Knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine, harnesses the power of Zero-Knowledge (ZK) proofs to reduce transaction costs and dramatically increase throughput, while inheriting the security of Ethereum. ZK proof technology works by grouping transactions into groups, which are then transmitted to the Ethereum network as a single block transaction. The “gas charge” for the single transaction is then split among all participants involved, which significantly reduces the charge.

For payment and DeFi application developers, Polygon zkEVM’s high security and censorship resistance make it a more attractive option than other Layer 2 scaling solutions. Unlike optimistic roll-ups where users have to wait up to seven days for deposits and withdrawals, zk-Rollups offer faster settlement and much better capital efficiency.

The system also enables easy migration of decentralized applications (dApps) that exist on Ethereum virtual machine-enabled chains to zkEVM, where EVM equivalence and Ethereum network effects offer distinct benefits to developers. Using programming languages ​​such as Solidity and tools such as Metamask, Hardhat, Truffle, and Remix that they are already familiar with, developers can migrate dApps by simply switching nodes. It also makes Polygon zkEVM ideal for seamless creation of NFTs, new gaming technologies, and enterprise applications. Existing Polygon dApps can very easily migrate to zkEVM with minimal support.

“The holy grail of Web3 infrastructure should have three main properties: scalability, security, and Ethereum compatibility,” said Mihailo Bjelic, co-founder of Polygon. “Until now, it has not been practically possible to offer all of these properties at once. Polygon zkEVM is a breakthrough technology that finally achieves this, opening a new chapter of mass adoption.”

The introduction of Polygon zkEVM opens up opportunities for the world’s most vibrant blockchain developer community to further innovate and build the future of Web3. They can continue to use the same code, tools, apps, and smart contracts they use on Ethereum, but with much higher throughput and lower fees.

“Many thought a zkEVM was years away, or not practical or competitive,” Jordi Baylinaco-founder of Polygon Hermez, recalled the feedback after the team’s presentation at EthCC Paris in July 2021. “No one believed in us, but Polygon did.”

A month after the presentation, Polygon published the Zero Knowledge Thesis and announced its merger with Hermez network (now Polygon Hermez), embarking on a journey to become a ZK powerhouse. As part of his commitment to ZK-related initiatives, he announced Polygon Twilighta privacy-focused rollup built in collaboration with EY in August 2021, adding Polygon Miden in November and zero polygon in December of the same year.

Now, Polygon estimates that its ZK ‘Rollup’ approach is capable of reducing fees by 90% compared to current costs on the Layer 1 Ethereum chain. Future configuration of off-chain data availability may further reduce charges. Thanks to the proof system breakthroughs pioneered by Polygon Zero and the technical contributions of Zero and Miden in its zkProver, Polygon zkEVM can now achieve full EVM equivalence and scalability with speed never before achieved.

Polygon has released some of the source code and roadmap for zkEVM, with its public testnet expected later this summer and mainnet launch slated for early 2023.

Notes to Editor:

  1. Zero-Knowledge Proof or zk roll-up uses advanced cryptography, and this cryptography validates that the calculation is done correctly by following certain rules.
  2. Polygon zkEVM is a Layer 2 scaling solution that allows developers to execute arbitrary transactions, including off-chain smart contracts, quickly and cost-effectively, while maintaining all evidence and data provenance on the secure Ethereum blockchain.
  3. The Ethereum Virtual Machine, or EVM, runs smart contracts.
  4. A node is one of many devices that run a blockchain protocol.
  5. Layer 2 refers to blockchains built on top of a base layer of the blockchain known as Layer 1.
