TbitLen(X) definition in Computer Security terms:

Acronym(s): None

Definition(s): A truncation function that outputs the most significant (i.e., leftmost) bitLen bits of the input bit string, X, when the bit length of X is greater than bitLen; otherwise, the function outputs X. For example, T2(1011) = 10, T3(1011) = 101, T4(1011) = 1011, and T5(1011) = 1011.
