|envelope encryption||Envelope encryption is the practice of encrypting plaintext data with a unique data key, and then encrypting the data key with a key encryption key (EDK). You may choose to encrypt the EDK with another EDK, and so on, but eventually you must have a master key. The master key is an unencrypted (plaintext) key with which you can decrypt one or more other keys.|
