I just want to repeat my answer from dev-de here.

For 4.1.x it is still blowfish. For 4.2.x you can alternatively choose
AES-256 (for ODF 1.2).
Settings are located at "Tools - Options - Load/Save - General"

Quoted from AOO 4.2.x online help:

      File encryption algorithm for ODF 1.2 format

Change the default file encryption from blowfish to AES-256 when ODF 1.2
is used. The default file encryption algorithm is blowfish but when ODF
1.2 is used the user can change the default to AES-256. Older encrypted
documents can still be loaded but new encrypted documents can't be
opened with older office versions. The AES-256 algorithm is more secure
than blowfish.
