Formal Verification Challenges for Smart Contracts

Amidst blockchain's rapid evolution, smart contracts have emerged as a vital application, widely integrated into decentralized platforms across finance, gaming, and supply chain management. However, their increasing usage brings forth security concerns, posing a significant challenge to blockchain's sustainable growth. Smart contract vulnerabilities not only risk substantial financial losses but also erode user trust in blockchain tech. Consequently, ensuring smart contract security has become a central focus in blockchain research and application. While various automated verification tools aim to enhance smart contract security, their efficacy hinges on crafting robust security rules. Yet, formulating these rules demands significant time and expertise due to the intricate nature of smart contract logic. This complexity not only incurs high costs but also limits the widespread use and efficiency of automated verification tools. llll.png

Empowering Web3 Security with PropertyGPT

PropertyGPT offers a groundbreaking solution to the challenges of smart contract security. Powered by advanced natural language processing, particularly leveraging GPT models, PropertyGPT automates the generation of robust security verification rules for smart contracts. Its core strength lies in understanding complex code features and transferring knowledge, enabling the automatic creation of efficient, widely applicable rules while diminishing reliance on security experts, thus reducing costs and time associated with rule formulation.

This approach enables PropertyGPT to swiftly produce a plethora of effective invariant verification rules adaptable to the diverse and intricate nature of smart contracts, meeting stringent security standards. By automating rule generation, it not only streamlines smart contract security audits but also cuts overall costs, empowering more projects to secure their smart contracts early on and fortifying the security framework of the entire blockchain ecosystem.

  • Vector Database Construction: Data undergoes vectorization, transforming it into mathematical vectors to represent smart contract code and execution rules. PropertyGPT constructs a Vector Database (Vector DB), forming the basis for subsequent analysis and comparison.
  • Similarity Comparison and Rule Selection: PropertyGPT compares contract code vectors with those in the database to select top similar rules, laying the groundwork for generating verification specifications.
  • Verification Specification Generation: PropertyGPT inputs contract code and selected rules into the GPT model, which autonomously generates specifications or properties for the Prover, guiding security verification to ensure smart contract safety. picc1.png picc.png
