Bring your own key (BYOK)

Arcana Network Platform offers you flexibility in choosing the kind of authentication mechanism to onboard the dApp users. It supports various Arcana Authentication mechanism to address different dApp use cases depending upon the level of privacy, ease of use and application requirements. However, if the user does not wish to use any of the social or well known authentication mechanisms, they can bring their own keys, generated by third-party cryptographic key management systems.

Note, in case of BYOK, users are responsible for managing and securing their private keys. If you use third-party tools for generating and assigning keys to dApp end-users, then you need to manage those keys and secure them. In this case, Arcana Network Platform will simply use these keys that you assign and manage. For example, if you use MetaMask as your wallet, Arcana Network will not assign any keys to the application user but integrate with third-party wallet provider seamlessly.
