Linux Kernel Configuration
└─>Cryptographic API
└─>Hardware crypto devices
└─>DES and Triple DES cipher algorithms
In linux kernel since version 2.6.16 (release Date: 2006-03-19)  
This is the s390 hardware accelerated implementation of the
DES cipher algorithm (FIPS 46-2), and Triple DES EDE (FIPS 46-3).

As of z990 the ECB and CBC mode are hardware accelerated.
As of z196 the CTR mode is hardware accelerated.
