I noted in the man page for fast-des that there is an option to invoke miltiple pass encryption with different keys. It was stated that this increased the security of the encryption.
While I am not a mathematician or cryptanalyst, it seems reasonable that this would merely result in the situation where a third key from the available binary keyspace would decrypt the data in one pass. Is this in fact the case?
