Dataflow Overview

During a transaction handled by Ledger Device several exchanges are done between different application & hardware components. These exchanges allow to read data from Ledger Device & Sign Transactions with internal private key without sharing it.

Application Sequence Diagram Fig. 1: Application Sequence Diagram

This diagram demonstrate the sequence of different calls done by each application layer during a transaction. 5 different layers are used to handle a transaction:

  • Your Application Core Code
  • Ledger JS Transport API
  • Ledger JS Dedicated App Lib
  • Nano App
  • Ledger Device Software

This workflow demonstrate a typical use case of Ledger Device using an Nano App Lib. If you are planning to integrate with a Nano API-less you have to complete all actions done by LedgerJS Dedicated App Lib within your application core code.
