Which of the following would Matt, a security administrator, use to encrypt transmissions from an internal
database to an internal server, keeping in mind that the encryption process must add as little latency to the
process as possible?
3DES would be less secure compared to ECC, but 3DES would require less computational power.
Triple-DES (3DES) is a technological upgrade of DES. 3DES is still used, even though AES is the preferred
choice for government applications. 3DES is considerably harder to break than many other systems, and it’s
more secure than DES. It increases the key length to 168 bits (using three 56-bit DES keys).
