A key generated by the authentication service or the ticket-granting service. A session key is generated to provide secure transactions between a client and a service. Its lifetime is limited to a single login session. See also key.
A cryptographic key intended to encrypt data for a limited period of time, typically between a pair of entities.
A session key is a symmetric key which encrypts a message or session, in order to protect data during transmission. It is created at the beginning of a communications session.
A common cryptographic technique to encrypt each individual conversation between two people with a separate key.
A randomly-generated key that is used one time, then discarded. Session keys are symmetric (used for both encryption and decryption). They are sent with the message, protected by encryption with a public key from the intended recipient. A session key consists of a random number of approximately 40 to 2000 bits. Session keys can be derived from hash values by calling the CryptDeriveKey function.
A unique key that the AOCE authentication server generates and returns to the ASDSP initiator in a secure manner. The authentication server generates the session key exclusively for use by the authentication process for the session that the initiator attempts to open. The session key is valid for a limited time only.
a key that is generated by the authentication service or the ticket-granting service
a key that is just used for one communications sessiona single telephone conversation-and then discarded
a key used for encryption of a single message or communication session
an encryption and decryption key that is randomly generated to ensure the security of a communications session between between two computers
a one-time randomly generated key which is used to encrypt data instead of RSA
a secret key that is generated new each time the Purchase button is clicked
a secret key that is shared by the client and server
a secret symmetrical key, which is used to encrypt data, after a SSL connection has been established between the client and the host
a temporary secret encryption key, generated at random by the KDC to be shared between two principals (usually a user and a service)
Crypto key intended to encrypt data for a limited period of time, typically only for a single communications session between a pair of entities. Once the session is over, the key will be discarded and a new one established when a new session takes place. Also called a data key.
In many forms of secure transaction, a key is generated for one-time use and is then abandoned, giving a very high degree of assurance. The result is known as a session key
In Kerberos authentication, a data structure that enables the client to obtain a ticket and, by extension, the user's credentials.
A key used primarily for encryption and decryption. Session keys are typically used with symmetric encryption algorithms where the same key is used for both encryption and decryption. For this reason, session and symmetric keys usually refer to the same type of key. See also symmetric key encryption.
A key that is used to encrypt and/or decrypt the data transmitted during one and only one communication session.
A key that is used for communications only once
A key used in symmetric encryption that is temporary or used for a short period of time.
A randomly generated key used to secure a single connection and then discarded.
A key used for just one message or set of messages. In a typical system, a random session key is generated for use with a symmetric algorithm to encode the bulk of the data, and only the session key itself is communicated using public key encryption.
the key for the symmetrical coding, which is used for a limited time, is more frequent used for a protected connection, for example, on protocol SSL.
A temporary encryption key used between two principals, with a lifetime limited to the duration of a single login "session". In the Kerberos system, a session key is generated by the KDC. The session key is distinct from the sub-session key, described next..
A key shared by at least two parties (usually a client and a server) that is used for data encryption for the duration of a single communication session. Session keys are typically used to encrypt network traffic; a client and a server can negotiate a session key at the beginning of a session, and that key is used to encrypt all network traffic between the parties for that session. If the client and server communicate again in a new session, they negotiate a new session key.
an encryption key which may be used for only a single session and then destroyed; some-times called a "transaction key." For connection-oriented protocols (such as those in real-time communications), a session key is generally used only for the length that the connection is open (unless the connection time is long enough to warrant more than one session key). A new session key is generated for each new session (for example, each time one made a secure telephone call, a different session key would be generated). In many E-mail implementations which employ both public key cryptography and secret key cryptography, the term "session key" is sometimes used to describe the symmetric key that has been generated to encrypt that specific document. In this instance, the symmetric key would likely be encrypted with the recipient's public key to facilitate key exchange.
The secret (symmetric) key used to encrypt each set of data on a transaction basis. A different session key is used for each communication session.
A temporary key supplied by an authentication server to clients and servers, that is used to encrypt parts of authentication protocol messages. Its lifetime is the same as the ticket with which it is created.
A secret key used one time for a single session between two parties exchanging encrypted electronic information.
An encryption key created during the SSL connection establishment. This key is known only to the user and the server and is used for symmetric encryption.
A key for symmetric-key cryptosystems which is used for the duration of one message or communication session.
A cryptographic key for encrypting data for a fixed amount of time, usually a single communication session. When the fixed time is over, the key is discardedâ€”limiting the probability that the key will be broken and the data compromised.
A session key is a key used for encrypting one message or a group of messages in a communication session.
