revised What are the details of the DES weakness of reusing the same IV in CBC mode with the same key?
IV stands for Initialization Vector in the cryptographic (and mathematics in general) literature.

Thanks for correction. Should get back reading.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought 3DES wasn't a "kind of" DES, but it was a separate algorithm called TDEA which implemented DES in itself. Which, if true, renders DES "easily broken", but not TDEA of course.
