The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), also known as Rijndael (AES author’s name), has been the standard level of encryption since 2001. Encryption works by a series of steps. User data is called plaintext, which is not encrypted. AES is applied to plaintext to transform plaintext into ciphertext, which is encrypted. The AES encryption process uses “keys” to transform data from plaintext to ciphertext, and from ciphertext to plaintext.
