Full Review: Here Are Some Important Hidden Secretes Of BlockChain (Must Read)

1
BlockChain Is an E-wallet where transaction in Crypto Currency are Mostly Recieved Although there are Many E-wallet out there but we will be looking at the popularly used. which is called the BlockChains. According to One of the Operator on The Site. Review To Us All the Necessary Things We Need To Know about the Site.

 

He Further Talked About Some Specification and Features Of BlockChain Server and its Client Server Side. we will show you all what he said.

CLIENT SERVER SIDE.

The Site uses javascript the encrypt and decrypt
wallet client side in the user’s browser. The encryption is done
using AES-256 which is likely to be secure for the foreseeable future.

Wallets
are simply json files containing private keys. The entire json file is
encrypted by the users browser before being uploaded to us. So when a
wallet reaches our server is appears as random Base64 string. This means
we cannot view your balance, see your transactions or addresses and
cannot make transactions on your behalf.

The encryption is only
as strong as the users password. The minimum password length is 10
characters however if the a weak password is chosen e.g. “1234567890”
using a dictionary attack the wallet would likely be broken quickly.
Rainbow tables will not work as each wallet is prepended with a unique
salt combined with the users password using PBKDF2 to derive the actual
encryption key.

As everything is done using javascript in the
site is particularly vulnerable to browser exploits including malicious
browser extensions. Modern web browsers are much more secure than the
internet explorer 6 generation.

The private keys in a wallet can
be “double encrypted” using a second password. One password is then
required to login and another password is required to send funds. This
makes wallets significantly harder to brute force and also makes key
logging more difficult.

If our servers were compromised the
attacker could theoretically alter the javascript files to intercept the
users password next time they login. For this to be effective the
attack would have to go unnoticed for an extended period of time. In
addition to the server side checks we perform there is also the My
Wallet verifier browser extension which can be optionally installed for
added security. Before login it will transparently verify all the
javascript files running on the page match those hosted ongithub. If any
errors are found the extension will prevent the user from logging in.

You
can backup a wallet via Email, Dropbox, Google Drive and Download. With
a backup funds can be accessed without blockchain.info using
themultibit desktop client.

The Site supports a variety oftwo
factor authenticationmethods and the ability to lock down a wallet to a
specific ip address. We will not give out your wallet to anyone who
cannot authenticate themselves fully, however we cannot prevent someone
from using your wallet if they gain access to it another way. For
example if you keep a wallet backup in your email account and that is
compromised.

This has got a little technical but it isn’t an easy
answer. There are many factors involved including the security of your
own computer. The site has been running for over a year and currently
hosts nearly 40,000 wallets. There have been reports of some individual
wallets being compromised (reusing passwords) but no major security
incidents.

Finally a couple of recommendations for using our service:

Upon sign up print a “Paper Wallet”, store it somewhere safe and hidden.

Never
reuse the same password on another site. Or if using double encryption
it is acceptable to use a slightly weaker main password but ensure the
second password is unique.

If storing large amounts generate a
private key offline (bitaddress.org is great for this). Print it on a
paper wallet, then import the address as “Watch Only” address. When you
attempt to spend the funds you can scan the private key off the paper
wallet using a webcam.

In future multisig will be available for even greater security but this isn’t quite ready yet.

WEB SERVER SIDE.

The site currently runs on 4 dedicated servers,
hosted in a locked cabinet. All servers run behind a dedicated cisco
security appliance with intrusion detection. On the servers themselves
various “booby traps” are set to alert the webmaster if an intrusion is
detected.

The java code deployed to the Site is deployed in a single war (zip)
file. Each server monitors the checksum of this file to detect any
unauthorised changes to the code. In order to make reverse engineering
our encryption schemes more difficult the the java class files are
obfuscated using proguard.

A copy of every wallet is stored all
our servers. Additionally the latest 50 versions of a wallet are stored
on Amazon S3 and can be restored from the [Import / Export] section.

The server side code that handles wallets is open source.

The site is not vulnerable to CSRF requests as no login details or sensitive data is ever saved in session cookies.

In
the time the Site has been running there has been handful of XSS
vulnerabilities reported. None of these were on a wallet page and could
not have resulted in any direct loss of funds.

I Hope This Helps?
