@tab The default encryption algorithm is triple-DES in CBC mode. This
seems to be the algorithm of choice among conservative cryptographers.
The default list includes only quite old and well studied algorithms.
There is a special algorithm name @code{all} to enable all supported
encryption algorithms (except @code{none}).
@tab The default encryption algorithm is aes256. This is a newer
algorithm than e.g. triple DES, which might be a problem for a
conservative cryptographer, but it has been studied carefully by many
competent cryptographers, and it seems to be secure. The default list
includes only quite old and well studied algorithms. There is a special
