ABSTRACT: In this paper, we introduce a collection of cryptographic key constructions built from environmental data that are resistant to adversarial analysis and deceit. We expound upon their properties and discuss some possible applications; the primary envisioned use of these constructions is in the creation of mobile agents whose analysis does not reveal their exact purpose.
