[suse-security] cipher algorithm



Hello,
i m using the VPN solution openVPN, and OPENVPN provides quite many cipher algorithm,the default one is blowfish.
here is the list:

DES-CBC 64 bit default key (fixed)
RC2-CBC 128 bit default key (variable)
DES-EDE-CBC 128 bit default key (fixed)
DES-EDE3-CBC 192 bit default key (fixed)
DESX-CBC 192 bit default key (fixed)
BF-CBC 128 bit default key (variable)
RC2-40-CBC 40 bit default key (variable)
CAST5-CBC 128 bit default key (variable)
RC2-64-CBC 64 bit default key (variable)
AES-128-CBC 128 bit default key (fixed)
AES-192-CBC 192 bit default key (fixed)
AES-256-CBC 256 bit default key (fixed)


CBC mode is recommended but it seems they are all CBC anyway.
Which one do you recommand me? i want an efficient and robust cipher algorithm.
best regards

sebastien
