Polymarket Conditional Tokens

Security Audit

Download Audit Report
Summary

The most critical subjects covered in our audit are functional correctness and the resilience of elliptic curve calculations used in ID computation.

Security regarding functional correctness is high. Furthermore, the possibility of negating IDs on the used elliptic curve (and the subsequent possibility if creating “all-purpose” tokens) does not pose a security risk within the conditional token framework but adds additional complexity that should be taken into consideration when using conditional tokens (see Infinite minting of position tokens with no value).

In summary, we find that the codebase provides a high level of security.

It is important to note that security audits are time-boxed and cannot uncover all vulnerabilities. They complement but don’t replace other vital measures to secure a project.

About Polymarket Conditional Tokens

Polymarket uses gnosis conditional tokens to represent positions in prediction markets with binary
outcomes.
