Using EEA-compliant Privacy

When using EEA-compliant privacy, the group of nodes specified by privateFromand privateFor form a privacy group and are given a unique privacy group ID by Orion.

Enable the EEA API methods using the --rpc-http-api or --rpc-ws-api command line options.

Specify privateFor when creating the signed transaction passed as an input parameter to eea_sendRawTransaction to create an EEA-compliant private transaction.

Privacy Group Type

Privacy groups created when specifying privateFrom and privateFor are identified as type LEGACY when returned by priv_findPrivacyGroup.
