KeepKey Build Procedure

Toolchain Installation

Install Docker Community Edition from:

$ docker pull kktech/firmware:v5-beta

Clone the Source

The sources can be obtained from github:

$ git clone
$ git submodule update --init --recursive


To build the firmware using the docker container, use the provided script:

$ ./scripts/build/docker/device/

Verifying Published Binaries

Compare the hash of a given tagged build:

$ git checkout v6.2.0
$ git submodule update --init --recursive
$ ./scripts/build/docker/device/
$ tail -c +257 ./bin/firmware.keepkey.bin | shasum -a 256

With that of the signed v6.2.0 binary on github, ignoring signatures and firmware metadata:

$ tail -c +257 firmware.keepkey.bin | shasum -a 256

Then inspect the metadata itself by comparing against the structure described here:

$ head -c +256 signed_firmware.bin | xxd -


  1. v6.2.2 and v6.3.0 had an issue with build reproducibility. See #212.
  2. As of v6.1.0 and later, we started prepending empty slots for signatures as part of the build, and prior firmwares were emitted without that metadata section. See 87b9ebb84
