Advanced Encryption Standard

(cryptography, algorithm)
(AES) The NIST's replacement for the Data Encryption Standard (DES). The Rijndael /rayn-dahl/ symmetric block cipher, designed by Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen, was chosen by a NIST contest to be AES.

AES is Federal Information Processing Standard FIPS-197.

AES currently supports 128, 192 and 256-bit keys and encryption blocks, but may be extended in multiples of 32 bits.

For those worried about security, the developers say that Viper FTP provides high secure AES256 encryption in CBC mode of single files using password.
AES128, AES192, and AES256 are the three standard sizes, with increasing levels of security as the numbers increase.

Passkeeper is Maxthon's solution to generate, remember and store passwords with AES256 and additional encryption technology to increase online security.
It uses industry-standard AES256 encryption to secure data.
The STM32F732 and STM32F733 variants come with extra cryptographic features on-chip, such as an efficient AES256 HW engine.
In the worst case, with AES256, the encryption process consumes memory overhead of 0.
The service provides advanced security, including SSL encryption of management channels and in-transit and at-rest AES256 data encryption.
He explains that using Wickr, user ID and device communications undergo multiple rounds of salted cryptographic hashing using SHA256, data at rest and in transit are encrypted with AES256, password and password hashes do not leave the device, and lastly that messages and media are subject to auto-deletion upon expiration.
The implemented security system is divided in two parts: i) the process of key generation and distribution, where only the SHA256 algorithm is used and ii) the authenticated encryption scheme where the HMAC-SHA256 algorithm is used to calculate the MAC (Message Authentication Code) and therefore to determine the information integrity and user authenticity, and the AES256 algorithm to protect the information confidentiality.
This "dynamic" encryption support, along with AES256 encryption of the content at rest, provides a secure solution for delivering premium content from a public cloud infrastructure using standards that will be supported by modern HTML 5 browsers.
It consisted of an AES256 capable router and switch for NIPR connected to a set with a TACLANE, router and switch for both SIPR and CX-I.
