AES-256 Cipher – Python Cryptography Examples

By Lane Wagner – @wagslane on Twitter Need to encrypt some text with a password or private key in Python? You certainly came to the right place. AES-256 is a solid symmetric cipher that is commonly used to encrypt data for oneself. In other words, the same person who is encrypting the data is typically decrypting it … Read more AES-256 Cipher – Python Cryptography Examples

(Very) Basic Intro to The AES-256 Cipher

AES stands for “Advanced Encryption Standard” and is a specification that has selected the Rijndael cipher as its symmetric key ciphering algorithm. AES encrypts a message with a private key and no one except the key holder can decrypt the message. This is useful for many reasons, but a good example is a laptop that … Read more (Very) Basic Intro to The AES-256 Cipher
