Hi all, If this question has been answered elsewhere already on Wilder's, please direct me to the right thread. What are the current Top Ten of encryption algorithms? Consider they would each have the same bit strength (either 128 or 256). From what I understand, AES was a competition that Rijndael won, so does AES equal Rijndael? Number 1 would be the one that is hardest to crack. Here are the impressions that I have of the top 10: 1. AES/Rijndael (if they are the same thing) 2. Twofish 3. BlowFish 4. 3DES 5. ? 6. ? 7. ? 8. DES 9. MD5 10. WindowsXP Pro native file encryption What are your top ten? Opinions, comments, and insights are appreciated.
