Expand description

TrustedState keeps track of light clients’ latest, trusted view of the ledger state. Light clients can use proofs from a state proof to “ratchet” their view forward to a newer state.



The current trusted state is an epoch waypoint, which is a commitment to an epoch change ledger info. Most light clients will start here when syncing for the first time.

Tuple Fields of EpochWaypoint

0: Waypoint

The current trusted state is inside a verified epoch (which includes the validator set inside that epoch).

Fields of EpochState

waypoint: Waypoint

The current trusted version and a commitment to a ledger info inside the current trusted epoch.

epoch_state: EpochState

The current epoch and validator set inside that epoch.

accumulator: TransactionAccumulatorSummary

The current verified view of the transaction accumulator. Note that this is not the complete accumulator; rather, it is a summary containing only the frozen subtrees at the currently verified state version. We use the accumulator summary to verify accumulator consistency proofs when applying state proofs.


Create an initial trusted state from a trusted epoch waypoint constructed from an epoch-change ledger info.

Note: we can’t actually guarantee this waypoint is actually an epoch waypoint, but the sync will always fail to verify it’s not.

Try to create a trusted state from an epoch-change ledger info and an accumulator summary at the same version.

Fails if the ledger info is not actually an epoch-change ledger info or if the accumulator summary is not consistent with the ledger info.

Verify and ratchet forward our trusted state using an EpochChangeProof (that moves us into the latest epoch), a LedgerInfoWithSignatures inside that epoch, and an AccumulatorConsistencyProof from our current version to that last verifiable ledger info.

If our current trusted state doesn’t have an accumulator summary yet (for example, a client may be starting with an epoch waypoint), then an initial accumulator summary must be provided.

For example, a client sends a GetStateProof request to an upstream FullNode and receives some epoch change proof along with a latest ledger info inside the StateProof response. This function verifies the change proof and ratchets the trusted state version forward if the response successfully moves us into a new epoch or a new latest ledger info within our current epoch.

  • If there was a validation error, e.g., the epoch change proof was invalid, we return an Err.

  • If the message was well formed but stale (i.e., the returned latest ledger is behind our trusted version), we also return an Err since stale responses should always be rejected.

  • If the response is fresh and there is no epoch change, we just ratchet our trusted version to the latest ledger info and return Ok(TrustedStateChange::Version { .. }).

  • If there is a new epoch and the server provides a correct proof, we ratchet our trusted version forward, update our verifier to contain the new validator set, and return Ok(TrustedStateChange::Epoch { .. }).
