Creating a Key

Creating a key for usage with Forwardie is recommended over a password, and is easy to do.

Only two properties are required: Name and Key Type.


A friendly name for your key. The contents itself are not relevant, as it is just a user friendly representation of the key.

Key Type

The type of the key. Forwardie supports three key types: ECDSA P-256, ECDSA P-384 and ECDSA P-521.

ECDSA P-256 keys may also be stored on your device's secure enclave. This is the recommended option unless you want to share the private key between multiple devices, as the key itself will be securely stored on your device's secure enclave. The other options also are safe, just not as much.
