AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) - Algorithm

                 AES - Advanced Encryption Standard Algorithm is the more popular and widely adopted symmetric encryption algorithm. Symmetric-key algorithms are algorithms for cryptography that use the same cryptographic keys for both encryption of plaintext and decryption of ciphertext. The keys may be identical or there may be a simple transformation to go between the two keys. The keys, in practice, represent a shared secret between two or more parties that can be used to maintain a private information link. This requirement that both parties have access to the secret key is one of the main drawbacks of symmetric key encryption.[Source - wikipedia]

Types of symmetric-key algorithms

  • Stream Ciphers
  • Block Ciphers
You can search for the detailed description. I am not going in deep here.
         Here, with our project we are going to implement - AES - Advanced Encryption Standard
AES uses a single key for both encryption and decryption.
