caver.wallet.keyring

caver.wallet.keyring is a package that provides functionality related to Keyring which includes address and private key(s).

Class

Keyring is a structure that contains the address of the account and the private key(s). This is a class in caver-js that allows users to sign on using their own Klaytn's account.

Keyring can be classified into three types depending on the type of key being stored: SingleKeyring to store one address and one private key, MultipleKeyring to store one address and multiple private keys, and RoleBasedKeyring to store one address and one or more private keys for each role.

SingleKeyring

const keyring = new caver.wallet.keyring.singleKeyring(address, key)

SingleKeyring is a class that stores the address of the account and a private key. To create a SingleKeyring instance with a private key string, please refer to caver.wallet.keyring.create.

SingleKeyring uses a private key with which no roles assigned.

Description

address

string

key

PrivateKey

An instance of PrivateKey containing one private key inside.

MultipleKeyring

const keyring = new caver.wallet.keyring.multipleKeyring(address, keys)

MultipleKeyring is a class that stores the address of the account and the multiple private keys. To create a MultipleKeyring instance with private key strings, please refer to caver.wallet.keyring.create.

MultipleKeyring uses private keys with which no roles assigned.

keys

Array

An array of PrivateKey instances containing one private key inside.

RoleBasedKeyring

const keyring = new caver.wallet.keyring.roleBasedKeyring(address, keys)

RoleBasedKeyring is a class that stores the address of the account and the private keys to be used for each role in the form of an array.

RoleBasedKeyring defines keys which is implemented as a two-dimensional array (empty keys looks like [ [], [], [] ]) that can include multiple keys for each role. The first array element defines the private key(s) for roleTransactionKey, the second defines private key(s) for roleAccountUpdateKey, and the third defines the private key(s) for roleFeePayerKey.

properties

keys

Array

A two-dimensional array that defines the keys used for each role. Each role includes PrivateKey instance(s). The first element in this is roleTransactionKey. The second element is roleAccountUpdateKey. The last element is roleFeePayerKey.

Below is a getter defined in keyring to intuitively use the key defined for each role. The key used for each role can be accessed more easily through the getter below.

keyring.sign

keyring.sign(transactionHash, chainId, role [, index])

Signs with transactionHash with the private key(s) and returns signature(s). If the user has not defined an index parameter, keyring.sign signs transaction using all the private keys used by the role. If index is defined, the keyring.sign signs transaction using only one private key at the index. The role used in caver-js can be checked through caver.wallet.keyring.role.

When signing transactions, it is recommended to use caver.wallet.sign or transaction.sign.

keyring.signMessage(message, role [, index])

Signs message with Klaytn-specific prefix. This calculates a Klaytn-specific signature with:

keyring.getKlaytnWalletKey

keyring.getKlaytnWalletKey()

Returns the KlaytnWalletKey string for the keyring. With MultipleKeyring or RoleBasedKeyring, KlaytnWalletKey cannot be used. In this case, use keyring.encrypt.

Return Value

Type

Description

string

The KlaytnWalletKey of the keyring.

Example

> keyring.getKlaytnWalletKey()
'0x{private key}0x{type}0x{address in hex}'

keyring.toAccount

keyring.toAccount([options])

Returns the Account instance for updating the AccountKey of the Klaytn accounts. The Account instance has an AccountKey instance that can contain public key(s) inside, which will be sent to Klaytn Network and used for validating transactions. For more details about Account, see Account Update.

Note that if you update the AccountKey of the Account stored in the Klaytn, the old private key(s) cannot be used anymore. See Getting started on how to use the returned Account instance to update information in your Klaytn account on Klaytn.

Depending on the type of the private key(s) in the keyring, the returned Account instances can be classified as follows.

  • When the keyring contains a private key string: Return an Account instance that includes the address in the keyring and an instance of AccountKeyPublic

  • When the keyring contains private key strings: Return an Account instance that includes the address in the keyring and an instance of AccountKeyWeigthedMultiSig

  • When the keyring contains the different private key strings by role: Return an Account instance that includes the address in the keyring and an instance of AccountKeyRoleBased

Parameters

Name

Type

Description

options

WeightedMultiSigOptions | Array

(optional) WeightedMultiSigOptions instance containing information that should be defined when updating your existing account to the one with a number of private keys. If keyring uses different private keys for each role, a WeightedMultiSigOptions instance must be defined for each role in an array. If keyring uses more than one private key and options parameter is not defined, the default WeightedMultiSigOptions with the threshold of 1 and the weight of 1 for each key will be used.

Return Value

Type

Description

Account

An Account instance to be used when a user updates AccountKey for their account in the Klaytn. Note that if you want to replace the existing keyring (or the existing private key(s)) with a new keyring (or a new private key(s)) for your account, you must update your AccountKey by sending an Account Update transaction to Klaytn beforehand.
