Cryptography is taught with the basic rule that there is no such thing as an unbreakable encryption because \"If someone tries enough keys he is bound to get the right one\", which gives rise to the basis of the brute force attack. Brute force attack, or exhaustive key search, is a strategy that can, in theory, be used against any encrypted data. It involves systematically checking all possible keys until the correct key is found. One of the measures of the strength of an encryption system is how long it would theoretically take an attacker to mount a successful brute-force attack against it.
