I am considerable new on cryptography and only know some basic fundamentals of it.
Looking at yaSSL ciphers I am trying to, as an exercise, to figure out which ones are still safe to use by today's standards and which are not.
The problem is that, by looking at the cypher names, I am not 100% sure of what is happening / being used on each.
AES128-RMD: I Suppose this one is using AES with 128 bits of key length. But what is RMD ? How does it influences encryption strength on this case?
DHE-RSA-AES128-RMD: I can only assume that this means that Diffie-Hellman is being used as the Asymmetric Key exchange method, followed by RSA to encrypt symmetric keys, to be used by AES-128-RMD ?
Tried to find documentation online and more about those ciphers but apparently yaSSL is the only framework that names those like this, and trying different combinations of terms isn't yielding me much.
Is there any crypto-rule-of-thumb kind of thing for refactoring these names into smaller pieces that allows us to understand the "process" behind each?
