Secret-Key Encryption Cryptography in Microsoft .NET

Cryptography is the art of secret writing. Modern cryptography is based on well-known mathematical formulas. Cryptography is an effective security control that can ensure the confidentiality and integrity of customer and other sensitive data. Although Cryptography is not the only solution for protecting critical information; it is one of the strongest available.

The .NET Framework provides implementations of many standard cryptographic algorithms. These algorithms are easy to use and have the safest possible default properties. Here I have presented only about the Secret-Key algorithm, the other types of algorithm available are Public-Key Algorithm, Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA), and Hash Algorithm etc.
