Due to the way the DES algorithm works, it is possible for certain keys to give sub keys that reduce the cryptographic strength of the cipher. Some more details are at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weak_key#Weak_keys_in_DES.
AES does not have this test as the algorithm is considered to not have weak keys.
Thank you for your reply.
