Cryptography is one of the most integral components when trying to maintain achieve a secure communication medium and determining the best cryptography algorithm is as important as having a secure communication. In this paper, we will find out the two superlative symmetric cryptography algorithms available and used nowadays. Then, observe which algorithm is better than the other and finally give some recommendations based on the results achieved. This will surely narrow down the options as to which algorithm to choose when trying to achieve a secure communication.
