Define "commercially used cipher".
I don't think the crypto ist the problem or the solution. Prism is
mostly about traffic analysis, which is not significantly
affected by encryption. The weakest link is most probably a
flaw in the crypto environment which can be exploited,
or backdoors already placed in the binaries/source code.
