The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is the most widely used symmetric cipher today. Even though the term “Standard” in its name only refers to US government applications, the AES block cipher is also mandatory in several industry standards and is used in many commercial systems. Among the commercial standards that include AES are the Internet security standard IPsec, TLS, the Wi-Fi encryption standard IEEE 802.11i, the secure shell network protocol SSH (Secure Shell), the Internet phone Skype and numerous security products around the world. To date, there are no attacks better than brute-force known against AES.
