Flashcard 17 - SY0-601 Architecture and Design Flashcard Set for the CompTIA Security+


The correct answer is:

key length


A key is the binary used with a cryptographic algorithm while the key space is the range of values in the key. The key length sets how long this range, or key space, can be. The longer the key length, the more secure the encryption.
