I believe there are a couple of old drafts.

All this seems to do, is use DES3/whatever in CFB-mode, and it's far
from clear that this gives you any better security than DES in
CFB-mode. There's a paper by Biham talking about this.

If you really want to do something with telnet, I think AES (not in
CFB-mode) is the way forward.
