ENISA Publishes Guidelines on the Use of Cryptography

ENISA just published a report with recommendations on the use of crypto algorithms, keysizes and parameters.

Crypto elements are classified in primitives, schemes, protocols ad key sizes and for each of them it is stated if it is:

  • Legacy not adequate, to be replaced immediately
  • Legacy adequate but with better existing alternatives
  • Future proof and expected to remain secure for 10 to 50 years.

Following the NSA saga and the state of uncertainty we are living in right now, this is a must read.
