  • Keys

    Arguably one of the most valuable components of a cryptosystem is the key, which represents the specifik combination or code used to encrypt or decrypt data.
    Keys are an important, and frequently complicated, item. A key is a discrete piece of information that is used to determine the result or output of a given cryptographic operation. A key in the cryptographic sense can be thought of in the same way a key in the physical world is: as a special item used to open or unlock something - in this case, a piece of information. In the encryption world, the key is used to produce a meaningful result and without it a result would not be possible.
