"man 9 crypto" and "man 9 socket" describe kernel interfaces to crypto (including CRYPTO_DES_CBC & CRYPTO_3DES_CBC) and kernel-level sockets.  However, if it's possible to do whatever it is that you want to do in userland rather than in the kernel, then you should avoid doing stuff inside the kernel unless you have compelling reasons.
