Data Encryption Standards

MSEDP utilizes the best and latest in cyber security services, ensuring that all of our clients have exactly what they need in order to keep their systems safe. One of the ways this works is to have data encryption standards. There are many different data encryption algorithms to choose from depending on the situation. But here are some common data encryption standards:

Triple DES

data encryption lock3DES or TDES runs DES algorithms, an outdated standard, three times, encrypting, decrypting and encrypting again to create a longer key length. It can be run with a single key, two keys, or three different keys. All with increasing security. 3DES uses a block cipher method, which makes it vulnerable to some attacks, like block collision.


This is one of the first public-key algorithms and uses a one-way asymmetric encryption. RSA has gained popularity due to its long key length, which has led to widespread use throughout the Internet. RSA is part of many different security protocols. It is also used by browsers in order to create secure connections over insecure networks.


TwoFish is one of the fastest algorithms out there and it is available in 128, 196 and 256 bit sizes with a complex key structure for increased security. One of the reasons for its popularity is comes down to the fact that it is free. Thus, it appears in some of the best free software out there.

Advanced Encryption Standard

The Advanced Encryption Standard, or AES, is established as the US government standard for encryption. AES is a symmetric-key algorithm that uses block cipher methods to work. And it is available in 128, 192, and 256 bit sizes. All using an increasing number of rounds of encryption according to the size. It was built for easy implementation in both software and hardware.

Elliptic Curve Cryptography 

Elliptic Curve Cryptography, or ECC, was developed as an improvement upon RSA. This standard provides better security with significantly shorter key lengths. EEC is an asymmetric method that is used in protocols such as SSL and TLS.

Common Criteria

Common Criteria, or CC, is not an encryption standard, but rather a set of international guidelines for verifying that product security claims hold up under testing. Originally, encryption was outside the scope of CC. However, it is increasingly being included in the security standards defined for the project. These CC guidelines were created to provide vendor-neutral, third-party oversight of security products. Products under review are submitted on a voluntary basis by vendors and whole or individual functionalities are examined. When a product is evaluated, its features and capabilities are tested. They are tested according to up to seven levels of rigor and compared to a defined set of standards according to product type.
