MSDN Webcast: Storing Secrets With ASP.NET (Level 200)
An application developer is responsible for many secrets, that is, sensitive information such as payroll, intellectual property, passwords, or configuration. This webcast explains how Microsoft ASP.NET can help to reduce the exposure of such data with hashing and encryption techniques. The webcast explores the high-level data protection services in ASP.NET, including Data Protection API (DPAPI) and the protected configuration feature. Cryptography alone does not solve problems, but it can be effective in combination with the right architecture and management procedures. This webcast examines approaches for different scenarios and explains how the APIs work to help to secure sensitive data.
