Tech/Engineering - IT (Information Technology) / electronic cash system
German term or phrase: Schlüsselableitungsdaten
I am translating part of a text describing the technicalities of an electronic chip card based cash system. I have very little context for this as it comes in a table with the headings Byte, Länge, Wert and Erläuterung

Under Erläuterung I have "Tag für Schlüsselableitungsdaten" and "Länge L der Schlüsselableitungsdaten"

Sorry its not much to go on.

TIA

key derivation data
Explanation:
Meaning data used to derive (calculate) an encryption key.

By the way, tag and length are standard terms of a method used to format data ('tag, length, value' method), and 'smart card' is much more common in English usage than 'chip card'.

... range of computational operations, protected storage, encryption and decision making. ... key derivation data, or information regarding card life cycle. ...
