The concept that a cyptographic system should be designed to be secure, even if all details, except the key, are publicly known.
Unlike the security thought obscurity model, the Kerckhoff principle maintains that if a cipher needs to be kept secret in order for it to stay secure, it's not a good choice. The priciple, sometimes referred to as Kerckhoff's axiom or law, forms the basis of open security and security by design.
