Secure Enclave

The Secure Enclave is a dedicated secure subsystem integrated into Apple systems on chip (SoCs). The Secure Enclave is isolated from the main processor to provide an extra layer of security and is designed to keep sensitive user data secure even when the Application Processor kernel becomes compromised.

Secure Enclave is an off-line cryptographic method that has hardware wallet equivalent security level and can be used simply via Biometrics. Versa has a hybrid key control scheme and allows users to select Secure Enclave as one validator method.

As p256 (the elliptic curve behind Secure Enclave) is currently not supported natively on Ethereum networks, the usage of the secure enclave to sign transactions requires a huge increase in gas computation. Currently, Versa uses a secure enclave to sign risky & less frequent transactions (Eg. for signing transactions above the daily limit) as a more viable option due to the current circumstances.

Coming soon.
