I did a guide : Create secure Paperwallet, This guide is based on ripple.com



What is the best software to create XRP  Paper- Wallets ?
I look for a secure methode to create one.

i dont trust Websites to create my Paper-Wallets - too easy to Scam - ;)

This is a problem that bothers me. Ultimately if you can't read code, probably at a high level, you're going to have to trust someone when making a wallet. This is why it bothers me so much that FINCEN banned Ripple from providing wallet software. I trust Ripple. That said, there are certainly trustworthy open source wallets out there, I'll let other people chime in on which ones they trust. I think Bithomp wallet is almost certainly trustworthy.

Quoting David Schwartz here:



If you have access to a machine with node.js and npm, it's just about five lines of code:

var keypairs = require('ripple-keypairs');
var seed = (process.argv.length==3) ? process.argv[2] : keypairs.generateSeed();
var keypair = keypairs.deriveKeypair(seed);
console.log("Ripple-address: " + keypairs.deriveAddress(keypair.publicKey));
console.log("Ripple-secret:  " + seed);

Save that as "coldwallet.js". Type "npm install ripple-keypairs" (ignore a warning about no package.json file). And then type "node coldwallet.js". Boom, you have a secret/account pair.

For extra paranoia, run the tool a few times and don't use any of the first few results.

Thanks @Flintston ;)
i never used node.js before ;) i only used notepad and andriodstudio , i read on Ripple how to do it... but i didnt know how to work with node.js ... -> i failed

i will try it. like u said. do u know how paper wallet work ? Is node.js connecting with the ripple server ? if yes do i need to secure this connection ?

Nope, completely offline. Just download the necessary files and install on your Linux device.

No Node.js experience necessary. I have no knowledge of coding but still managed to do it :) 

Double keys - not really an issue. You are more likely to be hit by a meteorite than match a pair of keys. The odds of creating a matching key-pair are 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
