Last week I covered the performance of cryptographic hash algorithms like MD5 and SHA-1. This week I’ll continue by testing the performance of the closely-related encryption algorithms. This includes algorithms like AES, DES, RC2, Rijndael, and TripleDES. Which is fastest? Does the key size, block size, padding mode, or cipher mode matter? Read on to see!
