    PGP or Pretty Good Protection is about the best encryption you can use to protect your files, emails, etc. You can get the software free from the link below.

    Another option is TrueCrypt. It allows you to create a password protected virtual drive. More information in the link below.

  • I'm not too sure about this question. The only encryption algorithm that I know of is the one that is used by my StompSoft's Digital Vault encryption software. That is 256 bit Blowfish Encryption. As to whether it is more secure than one or the other is more than likely debatable.

    AES-256, as others have said, is probably about the best you can easily get your hands on. PGP or Gnupg, and I'm sure others, have this as one of their options for encryption. Almost anything newer than DES will be much more than other links in the chain, such as passphrases used to generate keys, and the physical security of the keys if they're stored on your computer.

    AES256 is not illegal in the US, geeze.

    It is considered the highest level of encryption by most available to the general public.

    AES-256, but it's illegal in the US and the Government uses it. Also, check out TrueCrypt. It's awesome open-source drive encryption. http://truecrypt.org

    RSA is the most secure one, that all sites use when u see https:// instead of http:// that is ssl...the longer key u use the more scure it becomes...and it is open source , u could use it in java or c++...take a look at http://www.openssl.org/

    Good Luck...
