After Rijndael was selected as AES, someone suggested the really
paranoid should super encrypt with all 5 finalests in the
competition. Five level super encryption is probably overkill, but
two or three levels can offer some real advantages.
I wish there was a term for this sort of design in encryption systems
beyond just "defense in depth". AFAICT there is not such a term.
How about the Failsafe Principle? ;)
A good question. In my work, I've generally modelled it such that the
entire system still works if one algorithm fails totally. But I don't
have a name for that approach.
