    those are 16 bytes keys
    keep 5 of them should be enough.
    slot0x1BKeyX, slot0x25KeyX, slot0x18KeyX, slot0x11Key96(n3ds only), slot0x05KeyY

    D9 uses them. I'd suggest you to leave them in place so you don't have to hunt them down later if you want to do some funky stuff with D9.

    From Decrypt9s github:
    Slot0x11key96 is used by Cakes apparently, not sure what it does.

    I'd suggest just making the aeskeydb.bin and remove the ones that D9 needed.

    Slotkey stuff is needed by cakes and rxtools... Luma doesn't need that kind of stuff.

    You'll need them for Decrypt9.

    I don't have slot0x18keyX.bin yet D9 says it's already set up. Just asking, why?

    96 is the new added key on n3ds 9.6 and above. the reason we stuck on 9.5 for long time
