Our client is a leading US-based provider of advanced encryption solutions for protecting sensitive data and intellectual property. To enhance their enterprise product, they needed a driver for blocking restricted USB devices on both Windows and macOS.
After discussing all the details, Apriorit formed a dedicated expert team and outlined four main stages of the project development. During these stages, we managed to:
- Adjust our raw driver solution for Windows
- Add new features to the Windows driver
- Develop the macOS driver
- Create a custom application for Macs with M1 processors
One of the biggest challenges was to create a kextless application for computers with M1 processors, since they didn’t support the macOS driver we built earlier. After some research, we developed a new custom solution that worked flawlessly.
Thanks to the Apriorit team, our client enriched their enterprise software with the ability to block a wide range of USB devices based on sets of rules. The custom driver keeps the computer working if rules contradict each other and is compatible with the client’s other solutions.
The delivered driver increased both the value of the client’s product and sales. We continue supporting the client’s USB blocking solution and adding new features at the client’s request.
Our client is Plenty, a decentralized yield farm for creating liquidity and trading FA 1.2 and FA 2 tokens on the Tezos blockchain. They wanted to receive an unbiased evaluation of their smart contract security and discover possible vulnerabilities. Plenty approached the Apriorit team with the request to perform a security audit for their DeFi and swap smart contracts.
To help our client ensure the security of their product, we formed a team of blockchain developers with experience auditing smart contracts. For both DeFi and swap smart contracts, we outlined three main activities:
1. Checking smart contract security
2. Reviewing smart contract code
3. Analyzing test coverage
To check the security of smart contracts, we used the following methods:
Behavioral analysis of their source code
Checks against our database of vulnerabilities and manual attacks
Symbolic analysis of potentially vulnerable areas
Manual code review and evaluation of code quality
Unit test coverage analysis
Gas usage analysis
After performing a smart contracts security audit, we discovered 15 vulnerabilities and offered our recommendations on how to address each of them.
Thanks to Apriorit’s quick feedback, our client was able to quickly and efficiently fix the most critical issues and significantly increase their smart contract test coverage. Also, they received and applied helpful and relevant recommendations on code quality and security practices.
Our client is a company that delivers an automatic drone battery charging and data management system for aerial photography. They were looking for an experienced engineering team to develop software for it.
The key requirements were:
Display and control the battery charging process from mobile apps
Upload data from a drone’s SD card to AWS instances
Allow for interaction with the charging kit via Wi-Fi, BLE, and LTE
To deliver this project, we planned to:
Create Linux software and firmware for Pine ROCK64
Develop cloud-based infrastructure
Deliver Android and iOS apps that allow drone pilots to control the system
After discussing the project with the client, we planned four key stages:
Project discovery. Before the development, we reverse engineered Pine ROCK64 to study how it manages batteries and communicates with mobile apps and other hardware.
Proof of concept. We implemented basic functionalities like drone battery management, communication with AWS, and data management. We tested these features on a Linux virtual machine (VM) to avoid waiting for a real device. Also, we delivered the iOS application with basic unit management features.
Demo alpha version. We added possibilities for OTA updates and automated battery management. We also ensured that the iOS app can communicate with the device via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and LTE.
Minimum viable product (MVP). To deliver the MVP, we needed to port our software from the VM to the physical target device. At this stage, we discovered a lot of issues with the hardware and worked with the manufacturer, client’s engineers, and third-party experts to solve them.
Our client got a stable MVP that includes software and firmware for Pine ROCK64, iOS and Android applications, and AWS-based cloud infrastructure. The client can try out with drone pilots and gather feedback on how to improve the device.
Our client is Cryptonomic, a US-based company providing tools and services for blockchain-based financial products. They needed to audit the security of their recently updated Tezos wallet and a decentralized application (dApp) that consisted of smart contracts, a bot application, and a frontend library.
Apriorit formed a team of experienced blockchain developers who thoroughly audited the client’s Tezos wallet and dApp. For both the wallet and dApp, we outlined four main auditing activities:
1. Automated static analysis
2. Manual code review
3. Unit test coverage analysis
4. Testing for unexpected behavior
After the audit, we prepared a detailed report covering all discovered vulnerabilities and easy-to-implement recommendations on how to fix them. Once the client eliminated all critical vulnerabilities, we once more audited the reworked parts of the code and prepared a final report.
Thanks to timely updates from the Apriorit team, our client was able to eliminate most vulnerabilities shortly after they were discovered. Fixing a logical error discovered by Apriorit specialists in the bot application can also help our client reduce the cost of smart contract operations.
Finally, successfully passing this audit will help our client build a positive brand image and gain the well-deserved trust of end customers.

Our customer is a European wine company that wanted to launch a new winery startup powered by blockchain technology. They planned to use blockchain to prove the origin of each wine bottle by tracking its path through each stage of production and delivery. Also, our customer planned to raise ICO funding for this technology.
They were looking for a company with vast experience in blockchain development and penetration testing to build this unique network and ensure its security. When they contacted us, we helped them to detail their idea, create an implementation plan, and developed custom smart contracts.
Before the development of smart contracts, we created a scheme for the accrual of dividends. Originally, the customer wanted to secure each token with real crates of wine, but such a scheme had limitations with exchange operation and production logistics. Instead, we suggested creating a custom cryptocurrency — a wine coin.
We selected the Ethereum platform for this project and started building ICO tokens and coins. At this stage, we implemented and tested two smart contracts, one for a token targeting private ICO investors and another for public wine coins.
At the second stage, we implemented a custom smart contract for bottle authenticity identification. We also developed a desktop application for the vendor to enter the transaction information into the system, and Android and iOS apps for buyers to let customers visualize information about a bottle right in the wine shop.
With our smart contract implementation, the customer successfully raised ICO funding and started building a new winery for their startup.
Our client is a leading software manufacturer and service provider in the area of business process digitization. They worked on a blockchain-based solution that helps users securely store all their data and documents and directly contact all their business partners openly and transparently. To raise funds for this project, our client designed smart contracts on the Ethereum network to mint and sell a new cryptocurrency.
The client approached us with the request to perform a security audit of the smart contracts and provide recommendations on code optimization and improvements. Their goal was to avoid any possible security issues in their source code.
To help our client evaluate the security of the smart contracts, we gathered a team of qualified experts and chose the most suitable tests, analyses, and tools.
The agreed security analysis strategy included:
Behavioral consistency analysis
Test coverage analyses
Analysis of GAS usage and evaluation of code quality
Analysis of smart contracts in regards to the host network
The Apriorit team conducted the full security audit of the client’s smart contracts. We didn’t detect any critical issues, but recommended our client make some optimizations and improvements to the contract code. The client’s team analyzed and implemented all of our recommendations and are now fully ready to deploy their smart contracts to the Ethereum network.
Our client is a manufacturer of virtual reality (VR) equipment used for industrial purposes. Their devices are used around the world to perform scientific experiments, train doctors, aircraft pilots, etc. They needed a skilled development team that could create drivers for their new device.
The client had high requirements for the drivers, such as low latency and high bandwidth for data transfer between the device and the application, data transmission speed up to 10 Gbps, and stable performance under heavy loads.
Apriorit formed a team of business analyst (BA), project manager (PM), driver developers, and QA specialists. BA and PM assured that the driver development team works in sync with the client’s hardware development team. The developers delivered the following:
A high-speed data transmission protocol for a PCI Express device
A Windows device driver for a PCI Express device
An API for the Windows device driver
To avoid waiting for the construction of the physical VR headset, the Apriorit team used QEMU to create a virtual copy of it and develop and test the first iteration of the drivers. After several iterations, the Apriorit team adjusted drivers to the device, improved their performance, and tested them according to Windows Hardware Quality Labs requirements.
The client got the drivers that allow their device to operate with 3–10 ms of latency and ~11 Gbps data transmission speed. The drivers also successfully passed WHQL certification.
Thanks to the swift and skilled driver development, the client released their product in time with their estimations and received positive feedback on it from their customers.
