Maintained by user clients and nodes currently run through
large stakeholders in the blockchain ecosystem
In order to provide the assurance of privacy, and security, Torus is open-source by necessity
Key (or accounts) are managed by users and only them
Accessible on any stack, any blockchain regardless of cryptographic key type
Leveraging on threshold key schemes, the Torus Key Infrastructure provides seamless and flexible key management solutions which cater to all audiences
User keys are split via a threshold scheme into “shares” secured on a mixture of authentication methods and user devices. A threshold number of shares are required to gain access to the key.
Further decentralizing the social login, this corresponding “share” is split into sub-shares via distributed key generation (DKG) protocol across nodes run by large ecosystem stakeholders.
User clients and node operators make up the Torus Key Infrastructure, an open-source non-custodial PKI for applications. This open the door to DIDs, digital ownership, and much more.View docs
