DEFINITION

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)

AES is a widely used symmetric encryption algorithm that is employed to secure sensitive data in various applications, including data storage, communication, and digital signatures. AES uses a block cipher to encrypt and decrypt data in fixed-size blocks (128, 192, or 256 bits) and is considered one of the most secure encryption algorithms available today. It is used by governments, organisations, and individuals worldwide to protect confidential information and ensure data confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity.
