Internet security is broken

Federacy is a cryptoeconomic protocol and decentralized platform for security research and vulnerability management. It will unite open source projects, and the companies that use them, with the largest pool of security researchers ever assembled.


Decentralized, real-time vulnerability research, resolution, remediation, and scanning built on community-driven smart contracts.


Incentivized to report and resolve vulnerabilities publicly and to validate the information provided by other researchers.


Incentivized to code review and merge vulnerability resolutions.


Incentivize research into projects or specific vulnerabilities, and create bounties.


Incentivized to contribute to consensus about the vulnerability status of an asset and are a factor for the policy engine.

Smart Contracts

Remove centralized authority and drive the incentivization process for the activities and behavior required for improving security.

Policy Engine

Enables organizations to limit access to an asset (docker, cloud, base image) based on vulnerability status and other authorizations.
