Keys, Addresses, and Some Other Questions [Rippex] in New Members Posted August 21, 2017 · Edited August 21, 2017 by Sie 12 hours ago, RafOlP said: Hi there. Regular keys are a security feature. Your secret key is the master key and is the ultimate authority of an account unless it was disabled on purpose. Once you generated a regular key you can use it as a proxy to sign transactions, so it is an alternative authority for that account. The interesting key about regular keys is that they can be revoked by the master key, so you never lose total control of the account even if the regular key is compromised. Suppose you use an online wallet provider and you create it using your regular key instead of your master key. If you suspect there is any problem with that provider all you have to do to make your ripple account safe again is to revoke your regular key. If you want to use the same account online again afterwards you can generate another regular key - the old one will not be capable of creating valid transactions but the new one will work fine. Hmm interesting. I just responded to @pftq response before this, and I thought their answer to what regular keys are sounded similar to credit and debit cards. But your explanation now makes it sort of sound a little like how Bitcoin uses new public keys for each transaction, the basic idea at least.Hmmmm, let's see if I took away the correct information about Regular Keys based on the info provided by you @RafOlP and @pftq. 1) When making transactions, to ensure my Secret Key is safe and hidden, this is where the Regular Key comes in play and becomes a stand in for my Secret Key. 2) By creating a Regular Key, I would essentially now have two keys, the Secret Key and the Regular Key, to choose from to use whenever I needed to enter my private key somewhere. 3) But the difference is, the Regular Key is expendable at any time, temporary basically, until I decide to create a new Regular Key. While the Secret Key is the not and is the Master Key to my account. 4) I can log into my account/Rippex app with either the Secret Key or Regular Key. 5) But overall account control and setting settings lies with the Secret Key, the master. 6) Both the Secret Key and Regular Key start with "s" I was confused about this one though. Are both the Regular Key and Secret Key connected to my one Ripple address (my public key), the same one?? Ex - Secret Key and Regular Key = Ripple address Or do they both have their own Ripple address? Ex - Secret Key = Ripple address Regular Key = Ripple address 2 Did I get anything right in my understanding of what Regular Keys are? Or did it wrong. Thanks for your help!
