Managing keys

Options for managing keys in GoQuorum include:

  • keystore files

    As with geth, keys can be stored in password-protected keystore files.

  • clef

    Introduced in GoQuorum v2.6.0, clef runs as a standalone process that increases flexibility and security by handling GoQuorum’s account management responsibilities.

  • account plugins

    Introduced in GoQuorum v2.7.0, account plugins allow GoQuorum or clef to be extended with alternative methods of managing accounts.

ConsenSys has acquired Quorum from J.P. Morgan. Please read the FAQ.
