    Default block vs stream ciphers

    what do you guys think comparatively.... what has a more general purpose use and is typically more secure and or does that kind of logic apply or is it very situational?

    tkip = rc4 stream cipher with IV and AES = 256 bit block chain with 48 bit iv

    is it more secure because of the higher bit size and the block chain method?

    RC4 has been deemed insecure: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...1-or-microsoft

    AES CTR mode is considered the secure way to go.
