+ - Which encryption cipher is fastest to use with SSH->

Submitted by tinle
tinle (78894) writes "We know that encryption add overheads. In today's environment, ssh is ubiquitous. So running things such as rsync is usually done over ssh, which add the encryption overhead.

I wanted to find out just how much of an overhead SSH add, and which encryption/cipher is most efficient to use for large file transfers.

I run some tests in a controlled environment and the results is that SSH can add up to 33% real time over plain unencrypted such as FTP.

The details are here http://blog.tinle.org/?p=323"
