How to Securely Create Cryptographic Keys: Performing Key Creation Ceremony

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this class, scholars will learn the process of creating keys with proper entropy, backup processes, and how environmental factors can weaken or improve the strength and secrecy of the key.

What will students learn?
By the end of the session, you will understand entropy sources, physical wallets, secure environments, and other helpful items that all come together to create strong keys for holding assets. You will each work within groups to create a multi-sig wallet that each scholar is a member of, verifying the key along the way and creating tamper-evident backups.

This course is appropriate for people new to the industry, professionals, current and aspiring blockchain developers who want to better understand key security.

Prerequisite: none

Want to be ready to follow along? Install the BitPay Wallet (https://bitpay.com/wallet/) or CoPay (https://copay.io) onto your phone or computer prior to the session. 

The Key Ceremony Guide was released and used during this session to educate the class on entropy.
