Use Besu-extended privacy

Hyperledger Besu provides an extended implementation of privacy allowing you to create a privacy group for a set of participants. You must specify the privacy group ID when sending private transactions.

To enable the PRIV API methods, use the --rpc-http-api or --rpc-ws-api command line options.

To create the privacy group containing the recipients of a private transaction, use priv_createPrivacyGroup.

To create an EEA-compliant private transaction, specify privacyGroupId when creating the signed transaction passed as an input parameter to eea_sendRawTransaction.

Privacy group type‚Äč

Privacy groups created using priv_createPrivacyGroup have a BESU privacy group type when returned by priv_findPrivacyGroup.
