Represents the base class for the Data Encryption Standard (DES) algorithm from which all System.Security.Cryptography.DES implementations must derive.
See Also: DES Members
This algorithm supports a key length of 64 bits.
A newer asymmetric encryption algorithm, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), is available. Consider using the System.Security.Cryptography.Aes class instead of the System.Security.Cryptography.DES class. Use System.Security.Cryptography.DES only for compatibility with legacy applications and data.
