Definition Edit

The Triple Data Encryption Algorithm (TDEA) is an approved cryptographic algorithm. TDEA specifies both the DEA cryptographic engine employed by TDEA and the TDEA algorithm itself.

Overview Edit

The TDEA is made available for use by federal agencies within the context of a total security program consisting of physical security procedures, good information management practices, and computer system/network access controls.

Authorized users of computer data cryptographically protected using TDEA must have the key that was used to protect the data in order to process the protected data. The cryptographic algorithm specified in this recommendation is assumed to be commonly known among its users. The cryptographic security of the data depends on the security provided for the key used to protect the data.
