proof = eth.<address>.<claims>.<signature>.<extra>


The account address in hex encoding, ie. '0x9e63b5BF4b31A7F8d5D8b4f54CD361344Eb744C5'.

Note, you should not take the account address in the ethauth proof at face value -- you must parse the Proof and validate it with the library methods provided. The address is included when used to verify smart wallet based accounts (aka contract-based accounts).


a base64 encoded JSON object of

interface Claims {
  app: string
  exp: number
  iat?: number
  n?: number
  typ?: string
  ogn?: string


  • app (required) - App identifier requesting the issuance of the ethauth proof
  • exp (required) - Expired at unix timestamp of when the ethauth proof is valid until
  • iat (optonal) - Issued at unix timestamp of when the ethauth proof has been signed/issued
  • n (optional) - Nonce value which can be used as a challenge number for added security
  • typ (optional) - Type of authorization for this ethauth proof
  • ogn (optional) - Domain origin requesting the issuance of the ethauth proof


Signature value of the claims message payload. The signature is computed by the EIP712 eth_signTypedData call of the claims object. The signature may be recoverable with ECRecover to determine the EOA address, or you may have a different encoding such as one used with EIP-1271, to validate the contract-based account signature.
