Represents the base class for Triple Data Encryption Standard algorithms from which all System.Security.Cryptography.TripleDES implementations must derive.
See Also: TripleDES Members
A newer symmetric encryption algorithm, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), is available. Consider using the System.Security.Cryptography.Aes class and its derived classes instead of the System.Security.Cryptography.TripleDES class. Use System.Security.Cryptography.TripleDES only for compatibility with legacy applications and data.
This algorithm supports key lengths from 128 bits to 192 bits in increments of 64 bits.
