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DES is obsolete since few years, (not only) since its key length is fixed to 56bit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.
