The AlgorithmName class lists the encryption algorithms available for use by TDGSS.

Algorithm Name Description
NONE Indicates that the algorithm does not support encryption.
AES Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm.

A symmetric block cipher that uses the rijndael algorithm to process data blocks of 128 bits, using cipher keys of 128, 192, and 256 bits.

MD5 Message Digest Algorithm.

TDGSS uses MD5 for digital signature applications where it must compress a large file in a secure manner.

  • SHA1
  • SHA256
  • SHA512
Secure Hashed Algorithm

TDGSS uses secure hashed algorithms to compute a condensed representation of a message or data file.

Diffie-Hellman An encryption key exchange algorithm invented by W. Diffie and M.E. Hellman
