Hallo Roberto Ramsis,
am Freitag, 1. November 2002 um 12:37:15 schrieben Sie:

i needed to know,which is more secure : DES , BLOWFISH,GOST? and which is 

DES  is  obsolete  since  few  years,  (not  only)  since its key length is fixed to 56bit
effective. Even TripleDES has only 112bit effective.

With  GOST, i had not to deal yet, but Blowfish seems to be quite good and fast enough for
almost any use. Be sure to use 128bit keylength upwards.

Best regards,

Malte von dem Hagen
