About The Project
IOTA Stronghold is a secure software implementation with the sole purpose of isolating digital secrets from exposure to hackers and accidental leaks. It uses encrypted snapshots that can be easily backed up and securely shared between devices. It is written in stable rust and has strong guarantees of memory safety and process integrity.
To build Stronghold, you need a recent version of Rust installed.
The library comes with examples but has no executables on its own. You can use the following instructions to build the library:
- Clone the repo:
git clone https://github.com/iotaledger/stronghold.rs.git
- Build the library
cargo build --release
An easy way to get acquainted with Stronghold is by checking out the examples section. Examples can be run from the command line interface. Stronghold comes with a simple CLI example, that showcases all features in brief. To run the example change into the client directory, and run
cargo run --example cli
This should print the help of the example with all commands and options.

See the open issues for a full list of proposed features (and known issues).
Stronghold has been audited for security vulnerabilities. This process is meant to be continuously regulated as soon as new security relevant features are shipped with a new version.
Contributions make the open source community such an amazing place to learn, inspire, and create. Any contributions you make are greatly appreciated.
If you have a suggestion to improve this, please create an RFC following the Stronghold Enhancement Proposal(SEP) process. Do not forget to give the project a star! Thanks again!
