What are Transient keys?

Transient keys are short-lived keys. For example, if you need to do a key agreement, you encrypt with the agreed key, and then throw away the agreed key. A benefit of such a key is that no other user/app can see a transient key, only its creator can see it while the session is active.

Transient keys live in the Fortanix DSM session, so they die after the session expires or is terminated.
