There are many different algorithms that achieve the goals of cryptography. In this video, Mike Chapple explains the important factors to consider when selecting an encryption algorithm.
- [Narrator] There are many different encryption algorithms … that you can choose from when trying to achieve … one or more of the four goals of cryptography. … Let's talk about some of things you should watch for … when selecting an encryption algorithm. … First, it's important to remember … that encryption is very complicated. … It uses sophisticated mathematical techniques, … and even the smallest flaw can render an algorithm insecure. … For this reason, you should never try to build … your own encryption algorithm. … unless you really, really know what you're doing. … You wouldn't try to perform heart surgery on yourself, … don't try to build your own encryption algorithm, either. … Similarly, if a vendor claims that their software … is secured with a proprietary encryption algorithm, … and they won't share the details, … view that claim with the skepticism it deserves, … that's a big red flag. … For this reason, you should choose … an encryption algorithm that is proven. … The details of encryption algorithms …
