For security on steemit a number of generated numbers and letters known as keys used for authentication, encryption and decryption of data on a stern account. This is secure and only for the user, it is not to be shared with anyone. For security on steemit I developed an acronym for STEEMIT
S- SAFETY
T- TODAY
E- EVERYDAY
E- EVERYTIME
M- MISTAKE
I- ISN'T
T- TOLERATED
The keys on steemit are all different and for various purposes depending on the use and level of security it warrants.
The various keys used on a STEEM account are:

  1. PRIVATE POSTING KEY: used to login to apps such as steemit.
  2. PRIVATE MEMO KEY: used to decrypt private transfer memo
  3. PRIVATE ACTIVE KEY: used for money related actions on steemit
  4. PRIVATE OWNER KEY: this key is used to reset all other keys . Incase of account compromise it can be used to recover account
    PUBLIC KEYS: these are associated with usernames and are not required for login.
    Also we have what is known as the MASTER PASSWORD. It is what is used to generate the document for the keys, it has the highest level of security and should be stored safely and securely away from potential danger or any danger at all.
