I commited both additionnal paragraph, including Geert's suggestion

My only change has been using "the encryption security" instead of
"the security of the encryption" and "the encryption strength" instead
of "the strength of the encryption".

This seems better to me but I'm often wrong. maybe use "the
encryption's security", by the way
