For the agnostics like me, it's good to read some introduction like
Relying only on obsolete technos like DESPlugin is a no go, it's not safe
Even Triple-DES is also on its way to retirement, see for example
MD5 also is not anymore a secure hash, it's just OK for checksum.
So having an uptodate Cryptography package is super important.
Robert, thank you for the initiative!
