Recommended cryptographic measures - Securing personal data

This document addresses the protection measures applied to safeguard sensitive and/or personal data, which has been acquired legitimately by a data controller. In this respect it discusses how information technology users, who have a basic knowledge of information security, can employ cryptographic techniques to protect personal data. Finally, it addresses the need for a minimum level of requirements for cryptography across European Union (EU) Member States (MSs) in their effort to protect personal and/or sensitive data. This document is complemented with a set of technical recommendations for algorithms, key sizes, parameters and protocols, which is part of another study published by ENISA.
