scheduling algorithm

[′skej·ə·liŋ ‚al·gə‚rith·əm]
(computer science)
A systematic method of determining the order in which tasks will be performed by a computer system, generally incorporated into the operating system.

scheduling algorithm

A method used to schedule jobs for execution. Priority, length of time in the job queue and available resources are examples of criteria used.

In a cipher algorithm a secret key is used to create the number of round keys (sub-keys) according to specified key scheduling algorithm. Each sub-key in a round of the encryption algorithm is mixed with input data which hide the correlation between input and output of the round.
