Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I just found the tag - it has 83 questions, 23 of them also tagged .

From a first skimming of the questions, it looks like some of them might mean some keyword/constant named AES_ENCRYPT (in PHP?), and some other want actually specify that they are about the encryption instead of decryption part. (There is no , though.) Most of them simply mean "I want to encrypt using the AES algorithm".

I think this could be merged to without any losses.

There is also , which is about the medium-key-length variant of AES (other variants are the common AES-128 and the "very-high-security" AES-512 - but there are no tags for them). 8 of them are also tagged (and 3 , one question has all three tags.)

Some of them are actually about the 256-bit variant, others would be the same for any AES variant (or in fact for any block cipher algorithm).

I think this could also be merged with - if not, at least all of these questions should receive an additional tag.

Myself having only a score of 3 in the tag, I can't propose these synonyms for the experts to approve, so I'm calling for help here.

Hmm, I should not post requests on friday evening, they tend to fall down.

Good idea -- I merged all your suggestions together.

(I did not set up synonyms; let's see if people stick to like they should.)

Thanks! (We can see in this question how having the right tag helps getting quick answers ... this got done in 8 minutes after adding the retag-request tag, while before it was ignored for a week without this tag.) – Paŭlo Ebermann Aug 20 '11 at 15:07
