AS2Secure: a new level of encryption software

 Q:   Ask a Question about AS2Secure: a new level of encryption software       
AS2Secure: a new level of encryption software More and more people are using all kind of encryption software to keep their vital information safe. Basically, there are two types of encryption software: those who can actually protect your information and those who can be "broken" in just a few minutes by someone with "proper tools".

The software structure is not that important but extremely important is the used encryption algorithm.
There are a few encryption algorithms:

-RSA: The system uses a private and a public key. To start two large prime numbers are selected and then multiplied together; n=p*q.
- DES or 3DES: DES is a block cipher with 64-bit block size that uses 56-bit keys. Due to recent advances in computer technology, some experts no longer consider DES secure against all attacks; since then Triple-DES (3DES) has emerged as a stronger method.
- Blowfish: It takes a variable-length key, from 32 to 448 bits, making it ideal for both domestic and exportable use.
- IDEA: It uses the same key for encryption and decryption, like DES operating on 8 bytes at a time.
- SEAL: It is a Stream-Cipher. Stream Ciphers are much faster than block ciphers (Blowfish, IDEA, DES) but have a longer initialization phase during which a large set of tables is done using the Secure Hash Algorithm. SEAL uses a 160 bit key for encryption and is considered very safe.
- RCA: It is a cipher with a key size of up to 2048 bits (256 bytes), which on the brief examination given it over the past year or so seems to be a relatively fast and strong cipher.

As you can see, there are various encryption algorithms. Most of them are quite safe but are a few “outdated” algorithms. It is extremely dangerous to use them as a professional hacker or someone with proper tools can easily “break” them.
AS2Secure is using the powerful Triple DES to secure your data. 3DES is one of the most powerful encryption algorithms of the moment. Using standard DES encryption, Triple-DES encrypts data three times and uses a different key for at least one of the three passes giving it a cumulative key size of 112-168 bits.
