In case you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
