Hi, indrajith,All these

Hi, indrajith,

All these concept are for the authentication purpose. i will try to explain each points

1. key−chain

You are making a keychain with name of MYCHAIN. in side of this key chain iu can make many keys . 

Its like the bundle of your house key.  each key  bundle have many keys  for different rooms or stores


2. key- one key from budle of keys 

 Each key can use for authentication . and u can specify wich period each key need to use

 

eg

key-1 mandy to friday

key 2 satuday only

key 3 sunday only

 

3. key-string

It is the simple password for the authentication ( can be clear test or MD5)
