I too would like to know the encryption algorithms. But it isn't going
to happen. They're proprietary. (Some of them, anyway.)
As for the encryption options, you can look them up in the SAS OnlineDoc(R).
They differ for the four basic security services (SAS Proprietary,
SSL for Unix, and SSL for Windows). So there's too much stuff to cover in
a memo in SAS-L.
SAS/SECURE may not be available to you, since it falls under some of the
U.S. export regulations. (See the ITAR if you want.) Encryption in this
may be any of the following, depending on your country and your OS:
RC2, RC4, DES, TripleDES, or the MS CryptoAPI.
