Who uses VPN … Net. Sentron is an Industry Standard IPSec based VPN n

Who uses VPN … Net. Sentron is an Industry Standard IPSec based VPN n Used by Cisco, IBM, Symantec, Sonic. Wall, Watch. Guard, Linksys, Dlink and many others. n Net. Sentron only uses the following data encryption algorithms: n

3 DES (Data Encryption Standard) n Encrypts data three times. Three 64 -bit keys

3 DES (Data Encryption Standard) n Encrypts data three times. Three 64 -bit keys are used, instead of one, for an overall key length of 192 bits (the first encryption is encrypted with second key, and the resulting cipher text is again encrypted with a third key).

AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) Created to replace DES n Has a fixed block size

AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) Created to replace DES n Has a fixed block size of 128 -bits and a key size of 128, 192, or 256 -bits n June 2003 the U. S. Government (NSA) announced that AES is secure enough to protect classified information up to the TOP SECRET level

DES (Data Encryption Standard) n The algorithm specification was published in January 1977 n

DES (Data Encryption Standard) n The algorithm specification was published in January 1977 n NOT Supported by the Net. Sentron n Easily cracked and considered insecure
