An encryption key was a type of algorithm to encode data.

The carrier wave of a Federation signal received by the USS Voyager in 2372 corresponded to standard Starfleet security codes, with the encryption key of the code indicating its implementation date to be no earlier than stardate 48423. In reality, the signal was sent by the Kazon aided by Seska. (VOY: "Maneuvers")
