In 1997, the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology has announced the contest for the best block cipher, which would become the successor of the not-so-strong DES (Data Encryptio Algorithm). The government had a need for the new algorithm, which would be publicly known and well-tested with the community of cryptographists, proving its strength. The winner of the contest was to be named AES (Advanced Encryption Algorithm). And the winner was selected; it was the Rijndael algorithm, named after two Belgian cryptographers, Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen, with a block size of 128 bits and a key size of 128, 192 or 256 bits. Since the process was open, the algorithms strength has derived from its mathematical definition, not from «nobody knows the algorithm». Therefore, not only government can use this extremely reliable cipher, but any of us. Here is, for example, File Encrypter Rijndael, which is a very simple in use application for very reliable encryption.
In fact, all you should do with File Encrypter Rijndael is take these strictly «minimal steps»: select the file to be encrypted, enter a password, repeat the password, press Encrypt (and, correspondingly, to decrypt: select the encrypted file, enter the password, press Decrypt). This solution is the ideal union of the ease (of use) and reliability (of cipher itself).
