3DES A symmetric encryption standard. It improves Data Encryption Standard (DES) by encrypting data in three passes with separate keys. It was one of the standards evaluated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), but was not selected. Compared to AES, it is a slower and processor-intensive block cipher but is still strong and used in some applications. Also called triple DES and three DES.
