Hi Huang Jun,

You seem to be talking about mutable files, right ?

private_key and public_key are two parts of the keypair that is 
generated when you create a new mutable file. Every time you create a 
new mutable file, a new keypair is generated.

Not sure about what to answer here, sorry. I'll leave that to someone else.

Hope this helped,
