True but...

I would assume it is like dropping keys in the street. To know which house it is for is near impossible. But a criminal could deduce something, else just try brute force. But the number of houses with 1 known good key, is an order of magnitude (or more) easier to brute force than the same number of houses and an unknown number of random keys.
