[Q] Comparison of Encryption Algorithms
Sat May 10 00:13:02 2003
I'm been trying to learn about "how secure" some encryption algorithms
are, but I haven't found what I want. Perhaps someone can point me to a
I'm most interested in Blowfish, IDEA and RSA because I understand that
they are the most powerful and on DSA and ElGamal as I understand that
they are used by GPG.
I want to get an idea of the computing power needed to break those. As
well as any other security concerns that I should be aware of. I am a
mathematecian, I'm not afraid of doing some calculations to get the
answers I want.
