What is AES-256 Encryption?
AES-256 encryption is a standard U.S. block cipher algorithm for protecting (encrypting) data at rest. The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) specifies a FIPS-approved cryptographic algorithm and is used as a standard in Federal agencies for protecting unclassified electronic data.
AES was developed by NIST, adopted by the U.S. and continues to be a federal standard for encryption. For more information, check out Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 197: https://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/FIPS/NIST.FIPS.197.pdf
