Would u plz tell me in very simply that what is block and key means in AES?
No technical line just tell me in very simply.
This is unfortunately not really the right forum to ask general questions about encryption.
The key is the key used to encrypt, i.e. “password” in very non-technical terms.
The block is the unit of data that is passed through the algorithm, for AES this is 128 bits, or 16 bytes.
I suggest you read the Wikipedia page on AES, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard .
