With your Entity Secret now created, we're ready to advance to a critical juncture. You're about to convert the Entity Secret into Ciphertext and register it with the system. This process sets the stage for you to create your first wallet—a milestone to look forward to.
Begin by acquiring your entity's public key. This key is retrievable via our APIs and is instrumental in the upcoming steps. To obtain it, use your API key for authentication. The entity's public key plays a crucial role as it encrypts your Entity Secret. Once encrypted, the Entity Secret remains secure, ensuring the information is shared exclusively between you and the platform, keeping it out of reach from outsiders.
After obtaining the public key, the next step involves using RSA encryption to secure your Entity Secret. Follow these steps:
Employ RSA encryption with the public key to encrypt your Entity Secret. This cryptographic process ensures that the secret is encoded in such a way that only someone with the private key can decrypt it.
After encryption, convert the encrypted data into Base64 format. Encoding in Base64 ensures the encrypted data can be safely conveyed and interpreted in various contexts, including those that may not handle binary data well.
Ensure that the generated Ciphertext is 684 characters in length. This specific length confirms the encryption process has been executed properly and that the data will be maintained correctly upon receipt.
The code provided will assist in automating this encryption process, generating a unique Entity Secret Ciphertext every time it is executed. The resulting Ciphertext is what you'll use to interact securely with the platform's API when performing operations that require it.
Once you've taken the necessary steps to safeguard your Entity Secret by converting it to Ciphertext, you'll need to register it within our Web3 Services Console. This action is vital as it authenticates the Ciphertext, effectively setting up a secure foundation for all subsequent interactions using our Developer-Controlled Wallets. The registration links your encrypted key with your developer account, ensuring that you can confidently manage wallet creation and transactions with the assurance of robust security measures in place.
As you proceed with the registration of your Entity Secret Ciphertext, pay close attention to the recovery file that will be generated. This file is a critical safety measure for your operations. In the event that your Entity Secret is ever lost, the recovery file will act as your fallback, enabling you to regain access to your Developer-Controlled Wallets. Ensure that you store this file securely and in a location that you can access readily if needed.
By meticulously completing the registration and protection of your Entity Secret, you've not only guaranteed the security of your key but also laid down a bedrock of trust for all activities involving our developer-controlled wallets. We prioritize the safety of your data and are committed to providing a seamless and secure user experience.
