Using GoQuorum-compatible privacy

GoQuorum-compatible privacy mode enables interoperable private transactions between Hyperledger Besu and GoQuorum clients using the Tessera private transaction manager.

This mode requires both networks to run an interoperable consensus algorithm such as QBFT to work.

To run your Besu nodes in GoQuorum-compatible privacy mode, add the isQuorum:true flag to your genesis file.

The following documentation explains the transaction lifecycle in GoQuorum-compatible mode.


If you intend to use this privacy mode for a production use case, please contact us on Rocket Chat or by email.
