Vault Directory

Create a directory or folder on your computer in the location where you want to store your CLI Vault.

Download Vault

Download your CLI Vault https://havenprotocol.org/products for your desired operating system. Save, or move, it to the Vault Directory that you created above.

Verify SHA’s

To verify the authenticity of the vault you just downloaded, you’ll want to check the SHA Hashes. You can do this in two steps.

  • Type or copy openssl dgst -sha256 into your terminal
  • Copy the path of the unzipped file
    1. Mac: Select the file in Finder and click ⌘ c
    2. Windows:
    3. Linux
  • Paste the path into the Terminal after the openssl dgst -sha256
  • The full command should now
    • openssl dgst -sha256 /your-vault-path-file
  • Click enter and the output of the unzipped file should match the SHA’s shown at the download location. If they do not match, then do not open the file, and contact us in the Discord channel in the #support channel.

Example

openssl dgst -sha256 ./haven-offshore-macos-1.1.2a.zip SHA256(./haven-offshore-macos-1.1.2a.zip)= 09d0786196ed14717d1df1c33d359782bc50f03aea01ffd5cdbec800f4133c61

Antivirus

Before you open the zip file you will first need to create an exception in your Antivirus (AV) software. Search for “How to create an exception with … ” where the ... is the name of your AV software. Follow the steps and then return to this tutorial.

With the AV Software exception created and the SHA’s verified, you are now safe to open the CLI Vault. Sometimes the AV will still warn you by indicating that you have a PUP – Potentially Unwanted Program or a PUA – Potentially Unwanted Application.

This is normal and triggered by the mining software in the Haven Vault and is present in both Haven and Monero software.

With the initial installing completed you can now Create or Restore an Account.
