Enhancing TON Blockchain Governance: A Technical Analysis and Update

In the evolving landscape of blockchain technology, the TON Blockchain stands at the forefront of innovation and security. The latest governance contract audit, conducted by Certik, has revealed no critical issues necessitating immediate upgrades. However, anticipating future needs for new functionalities, we have proactively addressed all findings from Certik. This document serves as a technical brief on the current state and future directions for TON governance contracts, detailing the enhancements and proposed changes in a structured format.

Phase 1 Audit and Enhancements

The table below summarizes the findings from the Phase 1 audit, including the status of agreement, resolution, and additional comments for each checkpoint (CKP) and election issue (ELE) identified by Certik.

Name Agree? Fixed? Comment
CKP-01 to CKP-10 :heavy_check_mark: :heavy_check_mark: All identified CKP issues have been agreed upon and addressed.
ELE-01 :x: :x: The lower bound set in code is overridden by Config 16, making the exact value non-critical.
ELE-02 to ELE-06, ELE-08 to ELE-16 :heavy_check_mark: :heavy_check_mark: Addressed and fixed all identified ELE issues, with the exception of ELE-07 and ELE-09, which are noted as unable to be fixed or non-critical.
ELE-07 :heavy_check_mark: :x: Identified as non-fixable due to its low impact and current system design.
ELE-09 :x: :x: Current validation model’s dependency on ConfigParam 34 being non-null identified as a critical design choice, with no immediate solution proposed.
SMA-01 to SMA-09 :heavy_check_mark: Varied Addressed smart contract management and security issues, with SMA-02 noted for future enhancement regarding cross-chain replay protection.

Phase 2 Prospects

Looking forward, the Phase 2 enhancements focus on refining governance mechanisms and preparing the TON Blockchain for upcoming features and functionalities. The initial checklist (mirroring Phase 1 for consistency) confirms the commitment to maintaining the highest standards of blockchain governance.
