Forum Thread: Is AES256 Really Secure?

Is AES256 really secure? I am using it with decoded os.urandom(32) , how hard is it to decrypt? It is impossible to find the key with brute-force ( even if anyone trys to find the key with brute-force, it takes very very long ), is there any way to decrypt it without the key?

Of course it's secure... for now. If it wasn't, the entire world would be in panic. My sources say that urandom is a CSPRNG so you should be fine. An appropriate attack vector would to be through whatever application that implements the algorithm. Cryptology is an incredibly advanced topic so if I were you, I wouldn't try dealing with it directly unless I had years of experience with mathematics theory.
