Data Encryption

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 Server for Windows 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
