In cryptography, a pre-shared key is a character string (like a password) known by two parties, and used by those parties to identify each other. Pre-shared keys are commonly used for granting access to IPsec VPNs and WiFi networks.
Pre-shared keys are different from regular passwords because they are not normally associated with a specific individual’s credentials.
