In cryptography, Triple DES, or 3DES, is the common name for the Triple Data Encryption Algorithm (TDEA or Triple DEA) block cipher, which applies the Data Encryption Standard (DES) cipher algorithm three times to each data block.
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a cryptographic block cipher algorithm.
"Should be as fast as 3des aes turned out to be much faster than 3des in software typically 5 to 10 times faster"
from question "Why is AES more secure than DES?"
"Furthermore 3des is much slower than aes"
from question "Can we implement 512 key size with Triple Des algorithm"
"3des is more expensive than aes for example"
from question "HTTP vs HTTPS performance"
"Des is the least secure 3des is better but i d go for the aes"
from question "Encrypt and decrypt xml file content"
