All through this paper the notion of secret that we will discuss is a notion linked to the use of a digital quantity called “key” for a given equipment that is turned on by this key. To be more precise: the value of a variable is secret for a given piece of equipment if the possibility of use of this equipment, by trying all possible values of the variable is very long compared to a given duration.
