    There are several ways to use the term key in software development. You may have heard it a lot in regard to public and private keys. Those are used to encrypt and decrypt data sent over the wire. Another way is when you want to sort a large number of entries in a database. In that case, you most likely will need a unique key. For example, a page on the Internet is defined with a URI. You may define a canonical version of that URI making it unique. That canonical version is called a key for that page.
