Blowfish Security expert Bruce Schneier developed Blowfish as a possible alternative to DES. It can use key sizes of 32 bits to 448 bits and is a strong encryption protocol. Linux systems use bcrypt to encrypt passwords, and bcrypt is based on Blowfish. Bcrypt adds 128 additional bits as a salt to protect against rainbow table attacks.
