Configure Hyperledger Besu support

Tessera provides support for Hyperledger Besu.

To enable Besu support in Tessera, set mode in the Tessera configuration file to orion.

Orion mode configuration
"mode": "orion",

The configuration can also be enabled using command line overrides:

tessera --configfile config.json -o mode="orion"

If you enable orion mode, Tessera:

  • Attempts to retrieve the privacy group and its associated members for transactions sent with privacyGroupId.
  • Creates a legacy privacy group for transactions sent with privateFor containing a list of recipient keys.
  • Uses SHA-512/256 to generate 32-byte hashes of encrypted payloads to be returned to Besu.
  • Adds support for /receive POST requests using the application/json media type.
  • Includes the senderKey (for Besu sender authentication) and the transaction's associated privacyGroupId in responses to /receive requests.
