The Basics

A Lease-Set contains a set of authorized Leases (and other related information) for a particular Destination.

In-depth information

A Lease-Set contains:

  • all of the currently authorized Leases for a particular Destination
  • the public key to which garlic messages can be encrypted (see Garlic Routing)
  • the signing public key that can be used to revoke this particular version of the structure

The Lease-Set is one of the two structures stored in the Network Database (the other being Router Info), and is keyed under the SHA256 of the contained Destination.
