Low latency

When using encryption, we should use symmetric ciphers such as 3DES or AES to encrypt large amounts of because they both use block cipher encryption with a small key length, compared to asymmetric keys, which have a minimum of 1,024 bits. The server will not have to use as much processing power, as the larger the key length, the more processing and possible latency that can occur. We should implement network accelerator cards where there is a lot of encryption and decryption.
