In my understanding, private keys are encrypted with some symmetric algorithm, so you can't access them without passphrase. What is it called?
The key is encrypted with 128-bit AES in Counter (CTR) mode.
How secure is this encryption method considering the improvement to computing power in the next 10 to 20 years? May 20, 2022 at 5:22
Private keys encryption is normally done using Sha algorithm.
1SHA is not an encryption algorithm, it's a family of hash functions. Nov 9, 2016 at 19:47
"cipher"element. For example, in a Parity key file:
"cipher": "aes-128-ctr"means 128-bit AES in Counter mode.
