How are encryption keys generated and managed?

Key pairs are securely derived from the username you choose and the account key you receive on sign-up through scrypt, a memory-hard salted key derivation function. Details are available in section two, "Key Derivation" of the white paper.


Each time you login to your account, your private key is derived from the account key and salt. Publics keys are managed by the Peerio server network, with the option to independently verify your contacts identity with their Peerio ID #.
