Canopy security assessment complete

Electric Coin Co. once again engaged the cryptography group at NCC, this time to review our upcoming Canopy (NU4) network upgrade design and implementation.

We are happy and impressed with their work, which identified some small inconsistencies that could have caused consensus issues with alternative implementations at some point in the future, once they are written.

As we have in the past, we are taking their suggestions on board and will continue to use them to improve zcashd and our other work.

The report is available on the NCC website.
