This study designs a secret Key using an Algebraic Procedure (KAP). KAP has the capability to act in a different manner dependent on the plaintext input. Two different secret key length approaches are presented in this work. Increase the unpredictability and privacy of plaintext by using such a scheme is the main objective of this design presented in this paper. A sequence of algebraic procedures has been utilized in order to construct a particular coefficient by which the link between plaintext size and key length is customizable. This design of secret key enhances the privacy of sensitive data notably utilized with smart Internet-of-Things (IoT) based applications. Calculations on how long it takes to produce and encrypt a single secret key have shown that the suggested architecture is efficient. Additionally, the findings have demonstrated that when a directly proportional connection between user entries to size-in-bits, the relationship between user entries and secret key algebraic functions is reversely proportional thus higher unpredictability of plaintext and secret key may be attained.
