Underlying Bridge Security

At Socket, we feel it’s important to provide users and partners full transparency & control over every route/bridge we support.
Thus, we’ve collaborated with L2Beats team to develop a Bridge Evaluation Framework. It provides a standardized way to understand bridges on different aspects such as:
  • Security
  • Performance/Usability
  • Latency
  • Capabilities
This framework will be used in few important ways:
  • Whitelisting/Blacklisting: Partners can whitelist/blacklist specific bridges based on their preferences by using this framework
  • Bridge Security Score: We will soon release a security score for bridges based on the above framework and expose that via our APIs. With this, users & partners would be able to set security limits just like DEX slippage limits (ex: only show routes with security score > 6)
