Submission + - Which encryption cipher is fastest to use with SSH (tinle.org)

tinle 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
