Assign a Regular Key Pair

The XRP Ledger allows an account to authorize a secondary key pair, called a regular key pair, to sign future transactions. If the private key of a regular key pair is compromised, you can remove or replace it without changing the rest of your account and re-establishing its relationships to other accounts. You can also rotate a regular key pair proactively. (Neither of those things is possible for the master key pair of an account, which is intrinsically linked to the account's address.)

For more information about master and regular key pairs, see Cryptographic Keys.

This tutorial walks through the steps required to assign a regular key pair to your account:

  1. Generate a key pair
  2. Assign the key pair to your account as a regular key pair
  3. Verify the regular key pair
  4. Explore next steps

1. Generate a Key Pair

Use the wallet_propose method to generate the key pair that you'll assign to your account as a regular key pair.

{
  "command": "wallet_propose"

{
  "method": "wallet_propose"

      "status" : "success"
   }
}

In the next step, you'll use the account_id from this response to assign the key pair as a regular key pair to your account. Also, save the master_seed value somewhere securely. (Everything else, you can forget about.)

2. Assign the Key Pair to Your Account as a Regular Key Pair

Use a SetRegularKey transaction to assign the key pair you generated in step 1 to your account as a regular key pair.

When assigning a regular key pair to your account for the first time, the SetRegularKey transaction requires signing with your account's master private key (secret). There are several ways of securely signing transactions, but this tutorial uses a local rippled server.

When you send subsequent SetRegularKey transactions, you can sign using the existing regular private key to replace or remove itself. Note that you should still not submit your regular private key across the network.

Sign Your Transaction

The most secure way to sign a transaction is to do it locally with a signing library, such as RippleAPI. Alternatively, you can sign the transaction using the sign method, but this must be done through a trusted and encrypted connection, or through a local connection, and only to a server you control.

In all cases, note the signed transaction's identifying hash for later.

Populate the request fields with the following values:

Request Field Value
Account The address of your account.
RegularKey account_id generated in step 1.
secret master_key, master_seed, or master_seed_hex (master private key) for your account.

The sign command response contains a tx_blob value, as shown above. The offline signing response contains a signedTransaction value. Both are signed binary representations (blobs) of the transaction.

Next, use the submit command to transmit the transaction blob (tx_blob or signedTransaction) to the network.

Submit Your Transaction

Take the signedTransaction value from the offline signing response or the tx_blob value from the sign command response and submit it as the tx_blob value using the submit method.

Note that the response contains a hash of the transaction, which you can use to look up the transaction's final outcome.

3. Verify the Regular Key Pair

At this point, the regular key pair is assigned to your account and you should be able to send transactions using the regular key pair. To avoid losing control of your account, it is important that you test your regular key before you take any additional steps such as disabling the master key pair. If you make a mistake and lose access to your account, no one can restore it for you.

To verify that your account has the regular key pair set correctly, submit an AccountSet transaction from your account, signing it with the regular private key you assigned to your account in step 2. As in step 1, this tutorial uses a local rippled server as a way of securely signing transactions.

Sign Your Transaction

The most secure way to sign a transaction is to do it locally with a signing library, such as RippleAPI. Alternatively, you can sign the transaction using the sign method, but this must be done through a trusted and encrypted connection, or through a local connection, and only to a server you control.

In all cases, note the signed transaction's identifying hash for later.

Populate the request fields with the following values:

Request Field Value
Account The address of your account.
secret master_key, master_seed, or master_seed_hex (regular private key) generated in step 1 and assigned to your account in step 2.

Request Format

Here's an example of the request format. Note that the request does not include any AccountSet options. This means that a successful transaction has no effect other than to confirm that the regular key pair is set correctly for your account (and to destroy the transaction cost).

The sign command response contains a tx_blob value, as shown above. The offline signing response contains a signedTransaction value. Both are signed binary representations (blobs) of the transaction.

Next, use the submit command to transmit the transaction blob (tx_blob or signedTransaction) to the network.

Submit Your Transaction

Take the signedTransaction value from the offline signing response or the tx_blob value from the sign command response and submit it as the tx_blob value using the submit method.

If the transaction fails with the following result codes, here are some things to check:

  • tefBAD_AUTH: The regular key you signed your test transaction with doesn't match the regular key you set in the previous step. Check that the secret and address for your regular key pair match and double-check which values you used in each step.
  • tefBAD_AUTH_MASTER or temBAD_AUTH_MASTER: Your account doesn't have a regular key assigned. Check that the SetRegularKey transaction executed successfully. You can also use the account_info method to confirm that your regular key is set in the RegularKey field as expected.

For possible causes of other result codes, see Transaction Results.
