As the traditional “paper-based” world gives way to digital documentation and transactions, enterprises are demanding innovative solutions for digitally signing and authenticating such documents, files, and forms with iron-clad protection against forgery. Solutions must guarantee non-repudiation and promise the same level of security and trust that exists with conventional documentation. At the same time, such a solution should be simple to use, easy to deploy and offer a rapid ROI.
In this white paper, we describe the basic characteristics of DES and triple-DES and look at the security properties that a financial transaction system will want to achieve. We then look at the problems related with a migration from DES to triple-DES; enumerating and discussing several points that we suggest should be considered.
