The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES): Raising the Bar for Cryptography
William E. Burr
This paper describes how the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) selected the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), a new standard symmetric key encryption algorithm that has been adopted for use by the U.S. Federal Government, for Standards and Technology (NIST). The paper also describes the NIST follow-on efforts to bring other federal cryptographic standards up to the same level of strength as AES and to update and extend the NIST standard cryptographic modes of operation.
