Time: 2014 year.

I have next key: {"public_key":"02f6197ef15d989898b11c6c0axxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", "data":"8aba0051ff23fe95a13d2747a19261690ed80b4d5cf54xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx","salt": "9a7995ca9a714b80b6xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx","iv": "f06e8fe76f3xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"}

I have public address, i remember password, but i do not remember which software use this key. I copied this and save into evernote. Help please, may be this json familiar to you?

Also may be found some solution on python to decode and extracy my private key?

  • I'm not sure, but this may be an old Ethereum keystore file? You can give it a try on MyCrypto's desktop app (download.mycrypto.com), or if that fails try the legacy version of MyCrypto (legacy.mycrypto.com).

  • Could also be a custom format, but it looks like it uses AES-128/256 encryption so you can also possibly use a script to decrypt it.

  • yeah, this is exactly a JSON keystore file. There are a few versions of it, probably it is version 1

  • install geth and put this file into keystore directory, then at the console try to unlock the account
