Halborn Launches ZIION, an Open Source Web3 Security Testing and Development VM



August 29th, 2022

Halborn is excited to announce the launch of its blockchain and smart contract security VM (Virtual Machine): ZIION.

ZIION is a blockchain security VM that is open-source (free to use!), end-to-end, pre-compiled, multi-architecture, and multi-protocol. 

“Kali Linux is a great tool for pen testers and auditors,” says Halborn co-founder Steve Walbroehl, “but it’s not really equipped for the security needs of blockchain development. That’s why our best-in-class blockchain security engineers at Halborn built ZIION, a true turnkey VM with all the tools needed to securely build and develop in Web3.” 

With a goal to simplify blockchain development and security testing, security engineers can build on top of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, and more. ZIION features 100+ tools, utilities, dependences, and packages. 

ZIION features:

  • Protocol tools
  • EVM tools & fuzzers
  • Rust tools & fuzzers
  • VCCodium extensions

Made by blockchain security engineers for blockchain security engineers, ZIION is a security VM that caters exclusively to Web3 developers.
