Agreed! We have been using AES for years because a long time ago I read
that it is a lighter weight algorithm, so it provides strong encryption
using fewer CPU cycles. That saves us on hardware because we can stack
more tunnels on the same device than we could if we were using 3DES. 


I saw that benchmark not long ago. Still very good information.
