Thanks for spotting that -- it needs updating. I just removed it, because it seemed a little offtopic and, as you point out, now slightly inaccurate. The AES page goes on to say that, "This marks the first time that the public has had access to a cipher approved by NSA for TOP SECRET information." Incidentally, we also know the names of a bunch of other algorithms used for classified information, although the algorithms themselves aren't known publically—Category:Type 1 encryption algorithms. — Matt Crypto 8 July 2005 06:56 (UTC)
