I am interested in hacking around with Gluster cloud FS whose most recent beta uses AES with XTS only. The 256 bit key is needed to be generated and will contain a 64 character hex string. It also ...
We're using OpenSSLs EVP_aes_265_xts encryption on data (with unique, random, IVs for every new message encrypted) - which is working well. But, I've been asked; what is the forward cipher function ...
Is it possible to tweak AES-GCM so that it is satisfactory for whole-disk encryption (like XTS mode)?
Is it possible to leverage a preexisting implementation of AES-GCM to provide the key security benefits essential for full-disk encryption (similar to AES-XTS)? GCM is a popular encryption mode ...
I was wondering if changing the cipher mode to AES-XTS in EncFS would be a sound idea. EncFS uses AES in CBC mode until the last 1KB block, and CFB mode for the last block if ...
I'm looking to do file encryption of a bunch of individual files, some small, some quite large. The files will be write-once/read-many, so I could use CBC, however, since the read-access needs to ...
