Here's a recent article on hash functions:

hello

I m trying to setup a VPN under Suse Linux machines(using OpenVPN):
i have some  questions about cipher and digest algorithm:
BlowFish is the default cipher and SHA1 is the default message digest.
Are they good algorithms?
OpenVPN provides also other cipher such as:
cipher DES-EDE3-CBC  # Triple-DES
cipher AES-128-CBC   # AES

Which cipher and digest method should i use?
i want to secure my VPN as much as possible.

thanks a lot

sebastien
