Hi Ginger:

As I know, AES was the encryptation algorithm selected by AES due to=20
best performance with dedicated hardware... Actually, openssl recommends =

Blowfish (other AES finalist) because its performance by software=20
encryptation (as Linux is) is much better...

Anyway, I have read taht it will do soon with AES.

Please, have a look at


This article from charlie Hosner of SANS Institute talks about this...
