Summary: Crypt-DES_EDE3 - Triple-DES EDE encryption/decryption
*Crypt::DES_EDE3* implements DES-EDE3 encryption. This is triple-DES
encryption where an encrypt operation is encrypt-decrypt-encrypt, and
decrypt is decrypt-encrypt-decrypt. This implementation uses *Crypt::DES*
to do its dirty DES work, and simply provides a wrapper around that
module: setting up the individual DES ciphers, initializing the keys,
and performing the encryption/decryption steps.
DES-EDE3 encryption requires a key size of 24 bytes.
You're probably best off not using this module directly, as the *encrypt*
and *decrypt* methods expect 8-octet blocks. You might want to use the
module in conjunction with *Crypt::CBC*, for example. This would be
DES-EDE3-CBC, or triple-DES in outer CBC mode.
