About this course
To get started, you need to download our modified Linux iso file. ( Found here ) This is pre-loaded with the programs you need. It has a firewall ( UFW ) pre-activated that blocks all incoming and outgoing traffic. You will find Cleos (Command Line Interface for EOSIO), keepassx (password encryption software) and EOSIO-KEYGEN (key generator by sw/eden).
You will need 2 USB thumbdrives , 1 is for the ISO file, where the operating system will be located. And 1 (or more) Thumdrive or harddrive to store the generated private keys.
The boot process is rather simple on most devices, here comes a short info on what you may encounter.
We have built a key generator using C++, this is a very effective and simple solution.
Encrypting your keys is a good idea if you plan to store digital copies of them. This way you will at least make it harder for anyone to find your keys in case they get access to your device.
In this lesson you will learn how you can create vanity keys. Vanity keys are public keys that contain a specific word of your choice. In example: EOS89TDbb8R1zzMRcCvrxWjzpU468GSJaRy64Z1xPpaTsDHWPQwaX
