[Sécurité] 256-bit AES Encryption for SSL and TLS: Maximal Security
Article intéressant sur le chiffrement AES avec comparatif des niveaux de sécurité sur les Browsers courants.
SSL and TLS are the workhorses that provide the majority of security in the transmission of data over the Internet today. However, most people do not know that the degree of security and privacy inherent in a “secure” connection of this sort can vary from “almost none” to “really really good … good enough for US government TOP SECRET data”. The piece which varies and thus provides the variable level of security is the “cipher” or “encryption technique”. There are a large number of different ciphers — some are very fast and very insecure. Some are slower and very secure. Some weak ones (export-grade ciphers) are around from the days when the USA did not permit the export of decent security to other countries.
