Digital Key Cryptography#

Digital Key in Cryptography is a piece of information (a parameter) that determines the functional output of a cryptographic algorithm. For encryption algorithms, a key specifies the transformation of plaintext into ciphertext, and vice versa for decryption algorithms. Digital Key also specify transformations in other cryptographic algorithms, such as Digital Signatures schemes and Message Authentication Codes.
