Hello sgt.encrypto,

Yes, and no. The data encryption primitive is AES-128 or AES-256 in AxCrypt 2, while it’s always AES-128 in AxCrypt 1.

However, they use different modes of operation (CTR vs. CBC), different hash algorithms (SHA-512 vs. SHA-1) and there are numerous other differences.

Please read up on the full details here: http://www.axcrypt.net/documentation/technical/ .
