Encryption is a complicated affair. Designers of key encryption algorithms need to create something complex enough that it can handle data on a large scale. Furthermore, the system must handle the data in such a secure way that there is no way to hack it. There are times when designers will come up with an unbreakable, fast system that in the pinnacle.
Before long, someone will find a way to beat it, or it will become obsolete, slow and unappealing. This is what happened with DES. Since its inception, several companies have tried to create the very best algorithms and alternative options to replace it. Some have succeeded significantly with some impressive, complicated systems.
This guide will look at 5 of the best. This includes 3DES, which is still respected, the options from RSA, Blowfish, Twofish and 3DES’s eventual successor.
DES Was The “Original” Of The Key Encryption Algorithms
