I use skype on a daily basis for personal and business calls. I read this on the skype help website a few weeks back.

What type of encryption is used?

Skype uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), also known as Rijndael, which is used by U.S. Government organizations to protect sensitive, information. Skype uses 256-bit encryption, which has a total of 1.1 x 1077 possible keys, in order to actively encrypt the data in each Skype call or instant message. Skype uses 1024 bit RSA to negotiate symmetric AES keys. User public keys are certified by the Skype server at login using 1536 or 2048-bit RSA certificates.

Its my software of choice for internet/IP phones.

Only thing I had an issue with was initial setup with my IP phone of choice. After a few teething problems, all works just fine now.
