Create a directory or folder on your computer in the location where you want to store your CLI Vault.
Download your CLI Vault from https://havenprotocol.org/products for your desired operating system. Save, or move, it to the Vault Directory that you created above.
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 -sha256into your terminal
- Copy the path of the zipped folder. This will vary depending on your operating system.
- Paste the path into the Terminal after
openssl dgst -sha256
- The full command should now be:
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 the #support channel in the Haven Discord.
openssl dgst -sha256 /Users/Username/Desktop/haven-macos.tar.gz
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 installation complete you can now Create or Restore an Account.
