After logging in, at the dashboard you can “Create Project”, where you will generate your projects API authentication information which includes,
- Project ID - Sent as part of your endpoint, this helps us provide you with data on your Infura usage while routing your requests to the correct Infura backend systems for best performance using our API. You can see how to use your Project ID with requests to Infura now in our documentation.
- Project Secret - The Project Secret provides another layer of security when sending API requests to Infura. It should only be used when sending requests from a private backend system or server as the Project Secret should never be human readable in your client facing application. There is currently no requirement to use the Project Secret. We will provide more information in future updates and release new documentation to show exactly how the Project Secret can be used when sending requests.
- Endpoint - Used as your provider when sending API requests, the endpoint URL combines the network and Project ID to route your requests correctly. You will have different endpoint URLs per network and per connection type, see here for more information.
