What are weak ciphers?

A weak cipher refers to encryption algorithms that can be easily broken or decrypted, often due to outdated or flawed design. Some examples of weak ciphers include:

  • DES (Data Encryption Standard)
  • RSA with small key sizes (less than 2048-bit)
  • MD5 and SHA-1 (hash functions)
  • WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

It is recommended to use strong encryption algorithms such as AES with large key sizes, or secure hash functions such as SHA-256 or SHA-3, to ensure the security of sensitive information.
