Generating signatures on Jenga
To ensure the security of your transactions or requests, we have implemented security controls that we ensure that transactions can only be initiated by you and no one else. To achieve this, we use message signatures.
To generate the signature, you will need to create a private key and public key.
You will share the public key with us and use the private key to generate the signature.
You can use this command OpenSSL genrsa -out privatekey.pem 2048 –nodes to generate the key pair
Use a library like open SSL to generate the signature using your private key and plain text.
Here is the full Jenga Signature Generation Guide.
