KEY. An instrument made for shutting and opening a lock.
     2. The keys of a house are considered as real estate, and descend to the heir with the inheritance. But see 5 Blackf. 417.
     3. When the keys of a warehouse are delivered to a purchaser of goods locked up there, with a view of effecting a delivery of such goods, the delivery is complete. The doctrine of the civil law is the same. Dig. lib. 41, t. 1, 1. 9, Sec. 6; and lib. 18, t. 1, 1. 74.

KEY, estates. A wharf at which to land goods from, or to load them in a vessel. This word is now generally spelled Quay, from the French, quai.

Furthermore, performance evaluation of the PRD as shown in (12) for the secret key length P = 1,024 gives PRD = 18.76%, which shows there is significant different between the original ECG signal and the anonymised ECG signal.
The chaotic encryption of ComZip is feasible, and it does not consume extra computing resources, despite its key length. We believe these advantages are mainly from the parallel pipeline, the multilevel index/length code-words, and the chaotic cryptosystem.
This value will be used as a PRNG seed on both systems to generate identical intermediate keys of the desired AES key length. To compensate for any bias in the data used to generate R (similar data between data cycles may lead to a smaller PRNG seed pool), the intermediate key may be XOR'd with the previous AES key to generate a new, random shared secret key by which further communication will be encrypted.
The cipher MARS accepts the variable key lengths [7].
The main contribution of this paper lies in providing a way of calculating the raw key length based on the desired final key length used in QKD.
The Enocoro stream cipher family consists of two algorithms, Enocoro-80 which has a key length of 80 bits and Enocoro-128v2 which has a key length of 128 bits.
In the first experiment, we want to measure the elapsed time for distributed key generation by varying the encryption key length and number of participants.
If you scroll down the list of entries under Choose an encryption type, notice that the minimum key length in the Choose a key length box becomes very large.
While the keys are mathematically related to each other, given proper key length, it is computationally infeasible to calculate one key's encryption from the other.
Its key length was too short at 40 bits, it lacked key distribution, and, most importantly, it turned out to be fairly easy in break.
