Windows SIG: Your Key to Encryption with .NET



  • The Monthly Meeting of the Windows SIG


    Presentation Overview

    Your Key to Encryption with .NET

    Dan will present an introduction to encryption with a hands-on slant, particularly suited for those who haven’t used encryption yet and have been intimidated by convoluted technical documentation. You will learn:

    • To use the .NET encryption classes to encrypt any type of data.
    • To use public key encryption for key exchange.
    • To sign XML documents so they can’t be modified.

    The emphasis will be on straightforward solutions to common problems.
