Private Transaction Manager

GoQuorum uses a Private Transaction Manager, Tessera, to implement private transactions.

The Private Transaction Manager is a separate component that is concerned with the storing and distribution of encrypted private transaction data between recipients of a private transaction.

To enable private transactions, use the PRIVATE_CONFIG environment variable when starting a GoQuorum node to provide the node with the path to the Privacy Manager’s .ipc socket, e.g.:

export PRIVATE_CONFIG=path/to/tm.ipc

The Private Transaction Manager has two components:

  • Transaction Manager
  • Enclave
