Program Overview

Tranche is a decentralized protocol for managing risk. The protocol integrates with any interest accrual token, such as Compound's cTokens and AAVE's aTokens, to create two new interest-bearing instruments, one with a fixed-rate, Tranche A, and one with a variable rate, Tranche B.

The protocol is currently integrated with Compound and charges fees in Dai and USDT. Accrued fees are exchanged for SLICE tokens through Uniswap pools. SLICE holders can vote on protocol parameters and other governance issues, as well as stake their SLICE or SLICE-LP tokens for rewards

Further resources regarding Tranche Finance can be found in their documentation, https://docs.tranche.finance/tranchefinance/.

The bug bounty program is focused around its smart contracts and is mostly concerned with the loss of user funds, economic exploits, and smart contract security risk.

Rewards by Threat Level

Rewards are distributed according to the impact of the vulnerability based on the Immunefi Vulnerability Severity Classification System. This is a simplified 5-level scale, with separate scales for websites/apps and smart contracts/blockchains, encompassing everything from consequence of exploitation to privilege required to likelihood of a successful exploit.

All web and app bug reports must come with a PoC in order for consideration for a reward. All bug reports without a PoC will be automatically rejected with instructions to provide a PoC.

Payouts are handled by the Tranche Finance team directly and are denominated in USD. However, payouts are done in a mix of stablecoins and project tokens.

    • Signature malleability
    • Susceptibility to replay attacks
    • Weak randomness
    • Weak encryption

  • Vertical Privilege Escalation
  • XML External Entities Injection
  • SQL Injection
  • LFI/RFI
  • Horizontal Privilege Escalation
  • Stored XSS

  • Insecure Deserialization
  • DOM XSS
  • SSL misconfigurations
  • SSL/TLS issues (weak crypto, improper setup)
  • URL redirect
  • Clickjacking (must be accompanied with PoC)
  • Misleading Unicode text (e.g. using right to left override characters)

Out of Scope & Rules

The following vulnerabilities are excluded from the rewards for this bug bounty program:

  • Attacks that the reporter has already exploited themselves, leading to damage
  • Attacks requiring access to leaked keys/credentials
  • Attacks requiring access to privileged addresses (governance, strategist)

Smart Contracts and Blockchain

  • Incorrect data supplied by third party oracles
    • Not to exclude oracle manipulation/flash loan attacks
  • Basic economic governance attacks (e.g. 51% attack)
  • Lack of liquidity
  • Best practice critiques
  • Sybil attacks

Websites and Apps

  • Theoretical vulnerabilities without any proof or demonstration
  • Content spoofing / Text injection issues
  • Self-XSS
  • Captcha bypass using OCR
  • CSRF with no security impact (logout CSRF, change language, etc.)
  • Missing HTTP Security Headers (such as X-FRAME-OPTIONS) or cookie security flags (such as “httponly”)
  • Server-side information disclosure such as IPs, server names, and most stack traces
  • Vulnerabilities used to enumerate or confirm the existence of users or tenants
  • Vulnerabilities requiring unlikely user actions
  • URL Redirects (unless combined with another vulnerability to produce a more severe vulnerability)
  • Lack of SSL/TLS best practices
  • DDoS vulnerabilities
  • Attacks requiring privileged access from within the organization
  • Feature requests
  • Best practices

The following activities are prohibited by bug bounty program:

  • Any testing with mainnet or public testnet contracts; all testing should be done on private testnets
  • Any testing with pricing oracles or third party smart contracts
  • Attempting phishing or other social engineering attacks against our employees and/or customers
  • Any testing with third party systems and applications (e.g. browser extensions) as well as websites (e.g. SSO providers, advertising networks)
  • Any denial of service attacks
  • Automated testing of services that generates significant amounts of traffic
  • Public disclosure of an unpatched vulnerability in an embargoed bounty
