Aes

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a cryptographic block cipher algorithm.

Des

Data Encryption Standard (DES) is a cryptographic block cipher algorithm.

Triple size secure

Quality | Example |
---|---|

Encryption more secure |
"I ve read that aes encryption is more secure than the triple des encryption ms is using in their example above" from question "VB.NET Encryption using a password" |

Larger |
"Note that the effective key size of aes is larger than triple des" from question "Triple DES encryption on C# and PHP yields different results" |

Rijndael-128 more |
"According to this analysis aes rijndael-128 is more than twice as fast as des 3des with a bigger key size more secure" from question "Fast, simple to use symmetric cipher for integer encryption in Java" |

Faster 3des default

Quality | Example |
---|---|

Faster |
"This shows that the timings are sensitive to buffering and that aes is faster than des" from question "Copying bytes from FileInputStream to CipherOutputStream (or vice versa) extremely slow" "If aes is negotiated it s faster than des and 3des used by default by older applications" from question "Using pscp.exe for sftp transfer is very slow compared to filezilla" "Using des assuming it s a little faster than aes and requires a smaller key and" from question "Avoiding line breaks in encrypted and encoded URL string" "Aes can be even much faster than des or 3des when the cpu supports aes-ni" from question "Fast, simple to use symmetric cipher for integer encryption in Java" |

Faster result |
"Aes will indeed yield a considerably faster result than des" from question "Advise on file encryption performance in Java" |

Slower current requirements

Quality | Example |
---|---|

Slower |
"Des is usually substantially slower than aes on modern hardware and has keys that are far too short for modern use" from question "How to encrypt video from url and save encrypted video to device's SD Card" "Des turned out to be even slower than aes but for my current requirements a much simpler algorythm rc4 is sufficient" from question "Speed up android DES encryption/decryption" |
