Vault
Secure key and secrets management
The Vault service offers state-of-the-art key management with a focus on providing advanced privacy and messaging capabilities (i.e., zero-knowledge proofs, SNARK-friendly hash functions, double-ratchet algorithm, etc.) in a single enterprise-grade API.

Supported Key Specs

This section describes the elliptic curves and key specifications which are currently supported by the API. Supported curves and key specs are defined with a type of either or symmetric or asymmetric. Certain symmetric keys support key derivation (i.e., such as the ChaCha20 stream cipher). Other key specs, such as RSA, are provided for convenience and to achieve table-stakes feature-parity with industry-standard key management solutions such as AWS Key Management Service, Azure Key Vault, Hashicorp Vault, etc.

Symmetric

Key Spec
Description
AES-256-GCM
default encryption for the master key of each Vault instance
ChaCha20
stream cipher useful with double-ratchet messaging algorithm
RSA
2048, 3072 and 4096-bit RSASSA-PSS and RSASSA-PKCS1-V1_5-SIGN for sign/verify operations; RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256 for encrypt/decrypt operations

Asymmetric

Key Spec
Description
babyJubJub
a twisted Edwards elliptic curve designed for zk-SNARK circuits
BIP39
BIP39 hierarchical deterministic (HD) wallet for deriving secp256k1 keys
