Encryption protects the confidentiality of data in transit. This protection is accomplished by encrypting the data before it is sent using a secret key and cipher. The received data must be decrypted using the same key and cipher. The cipher used for a given session is the cipher highest in the client's order of preference that is also supported by the server.

Reflection for Secure IT supports the following data encryption standards:

  • Arcfour, Arcfour128, and Arcfour256 (stream mode)
  • TripleDES (168-bit) CBC mode
  • Cast (128-bit) CBC mode
  • Blowfish (128-bit) CBC mode
  • AES, also known as Rijndael (128-, 192-, or 256-bit) CBC mode and CTR mode
