TWOFISH was used to encrypt the session key. What was used to encrypt the
data is still unknown, since that knowledge is encrypted. (With TWOFISH. Are
you still following? ;P)

There are potentially two symmetric ciphers at play, one to encrypt the
session key, and one to encrypt the data.



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
My key is available at http://wwwhome.cs.utwente.nl/~lebbing/pubkey.txt
