Implementation Guidance

Encryption paradigms should follow contemporary practices as the strength of an encryption method may degrade over time as computational methods for breaking encryption continue to evolve. Changes may be implemented as scheduled patches or release updates, but if the new best practices were defined because hacker evolution has exposed new product vulnerabilities, then the update should be done ASAP.
