PGP Desktop and PGP Universal Server support for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm.
Note: This article applies to PGP Desktop 9.x and PGP Universal Server 2.x.
The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is the NIST-approved encryption standard. The underlying cipher is Rijndael, a block cipher designed by Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen. The AES replaces the previous standard, the Data Encryption Standard (DES). PGP Virtual Disk volumes can be protected with the strongest variation of AES, AES-256 (that is, AES with a key size of 256 bits).
PGP Desktop and PGP Universal Server support the AES algorithm for encryption. AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is a block cipher that can be used at 128, 192, or 256 bits.
The encryption algorithm used by PGP WDE is AES-256.
