While the intent of the question is clear, there is currently some question as to the accuracy of the selected answer:

(I got the answer "right", not looking for my point back, just thought it might be useful for people to know about this, as no-one is choosing AES 128-bit as the answer!)

That's a very interesting read. I got the answer "right" also simply because I though the AES-126 bit was a trick answer. I knew 126 bit didn't exist so I defaulted to AES 256 bit simply because it is a larger bit encryption.

I imagine that the AES-126 bit answer is a typo.

Can we get it fixed to AES-128 bit?

If AES 126 is NOT a typo, it is definitely out... but...

If AES 128 was what was meant, there is some argument in security circles as to whether AES 256 is actually STRONGER, although the length of the key suggests that it must be. Most security people I speak with agree that 256 is probably stronger but since none of us has the time to do a 149 trillion year crack, I guess we may never know.

Obviously any version of DES is weaker if you are familiar with the function of that algorithm although the key length may tempt you to believe otherwise :-D

Great question but the explanation does not begin to do justice to the answer.

So, any consensus on whether or not AES-126 was meant to be a trick? I chose AES-256 based on that assumption.
