Is AES exclusively for use by the Federal Government?  Who can use it? (Simple question, but I need to know now and don't have the time to look it up...)  ;o)

AES can be used by anyone, or any device that has it enabled.

For example we use Netgear routers and there is an option for the excryption whereby we can choose AES-128 or AES-256, so anyone can use AES really. It's supposed to be more secure and faster than 3DES.

Hope this helps.
