Re: [HTCondor-users] Better encryption than 3DES and Blowfish in HTCondor?

Hi Wesley,

We currently do not support AES but you'll be happy to know it is under development and should be included in one of the next couple development releases (8.9.X series).  This means it will be supported in the 9.0.0 stable release (and beyond), which we are hoping to release this fall.

In addition to using better algorithms (when they are available), we would also suggest that for installations with very strict security requirements that they run on isolated networks.

    I am looking to migrate my company's computing resources to HTCondor, but we have some pretty strict security policies. I was reading in the readthedocs about using encryption with HTCondor (https://htcondor.readthedocs.io/en/stable/admin-manual/security.html?highlight=use%20SECURITY#encryption) and noticed the only algorithms listed were 3DES and Blowfish. I was wondering if HTCondor supported any newer encryption algorithms such as AES or if there were plans to do so. Thanks!
