Keystore API

Every node has a built-in keystore. Clients create users on the keystore, which act as identities to be used when interacting with blockchains. A keystore exists at the node level, so if you create a user on a node it exists only on that node. However, users may be imported and exported using this API.

You should only create a keystore user on a node that you operate, as the node operator has access to your plaintext password.



Example Method


Create a new user with the specified username and password.

Your request will be rejected if the password is too weak. The password should be at least 8 characters and contain upper and lower case letters as well as numbers and symbols. It should not contain the word "Password".

Example Call

curl -X POST --data '{
    "id"     :1,
    "method" :"keystore.createUser",
    "params" :{
}' -H 'content-type:application/json;'<your-endpoint-id>/ext/keystore

    "id"     :1,
    "result" :{
