Abstract: Day by day network and internet applications are becoming very popular. Sensitive information requires ensured information security and safety measures. Security is the most challenging aspect in the internet and network applications. Encryption algorithm offers the necessary protection against the data intruders’ attacks by converting information from its normal form into an unreadable form. In the first part of the work described in this paper, we are going to use the Blowfish algorithm and apply it on a web service (employing management system) and in second part we will provide a fair comparison between two web services one without applying on it the algorithm and the other using Blowfish. The comparison is made on the basis of these three parameters : Response time, MTBF(mean time between failure) and MTTR(mean time to repair).
Keywords: Blowfish, cryptography, performance, Web Service.
