Short Take: IBM submits crypto cipher for AES

IBM has submitted a new encryption algorithm to become the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), a competitive process to replace the Data Encryption Standard (DES) widely used by the federal government. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) expects a dozen or so submissions in a process expected to take at least two years. Cylink and RSA Data Security have submitted, and CounterPane Systems, Entrust, Atalla, and several universities are among those expected to submit algorithms.
