Yes ,it encrypts

The Triple DES uses 3 64-bit keys that add up to 192 bits It encrypts similarly to the DES, but it does it 3 times, once with each of the 64-bit keys It encrypts the data in the first key, then it decrypts the data in the second key, finally it encrypts it again in the third key Its alot more secure than the DES, but it takes longer
