Cryptographic primitives

Post by lex »

hi, I'd like to know which algorithms AES Crypt uses, before starting to use the software. Becasue I see some softwares still use insecure algorithms like SHA-1.

AES Crypt uses AES with a 256-bit key for encryption using CBC mode with a key derivation function that uses SHA-256. The ciphertext uses an HMAC-SHA256 for message authentication.
