DKG - Distributed Key Generator

DKG or distributed key generator provides a cryptographic mechanism through which multiple parties contribute to the calculation of a shared public and private key set. It is different from the public key encryption systems as it does not rely on any trusted third parties for key retrieval.

Arcana has implemented its own distributed key generation system that provides an efficient, secure manner of dispensing private keys that can be used by dApp users to sign blockchain transactions.

Users can bring their own public and private keys or be assigned a pair of them upon registration through our trust-less Distributed Key Generation system. These are ECDSA keys on the secp256kl curve which work with any EVM compatible chains.
