Permission Model

Permission Model

We distinguish between two kinds of permissions:

  • Owner Permission: This permission has administrative powers over the whole account and should be considered for ‘backup’ strategies.
  • Active Permission: Allows to access funds and some account settings, but cannot change the owner permission and is thus considered the “online” permissions.

Both are implemented using Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) with public and private keys. Read more.

You can find the keys for your permissions in the Permissions tab:
