How it Works
KeepKey works with the bitcoin wallet software on your computer by taking over the management of private key generation, private key storage, and transaction signing.
Initialization and Back-Up
KeepKey generates your Bitcoin private key using its hardware-based random number generator, combined with randomness provided by your computer. Once your private key is generated, you are given the one-time opportunity to write down a backup of your KeepKey in the form of a twelve-word recovery sentence.
A PIN protects your device against unauthorized use in the event your KeepKey falls into the wrong hands.
Even if your KeepKey is stolen, it cannot be accessed without the correct PIN. The number placement is re-scrambled at random each time you connect your device, so even a key-logger cannot decipher your PIN because the numbers are only shown on the device.
