ALSO CALLED: Block Cipher, Symmetric Block Cipher, FIPS PUB 197, AES, Rijndael
DEFINITION: Rijndael (pronounced rain-dahl) is the algorithm that has been selected by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as the candidate for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). It was selected from a list of five finalists, that were themselves selected from an original list of more than 15 submissions. Rijndael will begin to supplant the Data Encryption Standard (DES) - and later  …

ADVANCED ENCRYPTION STANDARD DEFINITION (continued): …  Triple DES - over the next few years inmany cryptography applications. The algorithm was designed by twoBelgian cryptologists, Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen, whose surnames arereflected in the cipher's name. Rijndael has its origins in Square, anearlier collaboration between the two cryptologists.The Rijndael algorithm is a new generation symmetric block cipher that supports key sizes of 128, 192 and 256 bits, with data handled in 128-bit blocks - however, in excess of AES design criteria, the block sizes can mirror those of the keys. Rijndael uses a variable number of rounds, depending on key/block …
