The following material assumes an understanding of how cross-chain communication works and specifically how messages are verified.
This section will cover the three following topics:
- 1.Nomad's Root of Trust Our goal with Nomad is to create cross-chain communication that is resilient against critical attack vectors. Accordingly, this topic will cover the advanced aspects of Nomad's verification mechanism design, including fraud prevention, app-specific design, and liveness assumptions.
- 2.Attack Vectors This section will cover the common attack vectors used to compromise interoperability protocols, including compromising keys, economic attacks, and smart contract vulnerabilities unrelated to a compromised root-of-trust.
- 3.Long-term Security We believe that for crypto to take on the responsibility of onboarding the world's users and becoming the primary rails for finance, we need to think long-term. This means considering financial controls and other common security measures taken in traditional finance. This section is more exploratory in nature.
