Security :: Web.Config Encryption/decryption?

Mar 13, 2010

This is meant to be easy ive been told, but still cant get it to work!I have a sql database hosted on a shared server which requires the use of sql authentication.As a result I require to encrypt my sensitive data in the config (connection strings etc).I understand that you can do this using aspnet_regiis etc, but ive been told that as I have no direct acccess to the server, I may need to program the encryption.
I have seen a few examples, but as a novice I have been banging away at this, looking at an errors screen most of the time!

Security :: Encryption Decryption From A Java Generated Key?

Aug 24, 2010

I have a Triple DES Key generated by java code from a third party vendor. It is a 3 part key.

We need to use this key in our VB.NET application. When I try to combine this key and use it in my app

'Dim desTransform As ICryptoTransform = desCrypto.CreateEncryptor(EncryptKey(Key), EncryptIV(IV))' gives me an error ' Specified key is not a valid size for this algorithm)

I am new to cryptography and do not understand the algorithms well. How can I use the java generated key in our app for encrypt/decrypt.

Security :: Encrypted Password - Sort Of Encryption Or Decryption In Order To Verify The Credentials

Jun 16, 2010

For our website, we have decided we would like to maintain our user passwords as encrypted binary data in our database. We are using ASP.NET 3.5 to host our site and SQL Server Express 2008 for the database, both running on the same server. When a user logs in and submits a username and password, there will need to be some sort of encryption or decryption in order to verify the credentials. To me, it would appear that there are 3 ways to do this:

1)[C# Encyrption] On User creation, perform encryption in the Web App and submit the encrypted password to the database. To verify credentials at Login, perform the same encryption on the submitted password and ensure that it matches the value stored in the database.

2)[SQL Encryption] On User creation, submit the plain-text password to the database and have it perform one of the SQL encryption variants during INSERT. To verify credentials at Login, have the database perform decryption on the password during the SELECT statement, and compare the plain-text submitted password to the one in the database.

3)[Mix] On User creation, submit the plain-text password to the database, and have it perform one of the SQL encryption variants during INSERT. To verify credentials at Login, perform the same encryption algorithm used by SQL on the submitted password ( is this possible? ), and ensure that it matches the value stored in the database.

Does anybody have an opinion as to which of these options is best? Number 1) is the most familiar to me, and would be the easiest to use with LINQ to SQL ( which is our current data model ), so I am leaning towards that. But if there are better options I would love to know about them.

Standard Encryption Decryption Across Different Platforms?

May 28, 2010

i need to implement a standard encryption decryption logic across an entire project platform which has different clients implemented using different platforms as follows:

iphone app (objectiv c)
website (classic asp)
webservice (
samsung bada app (c++)

the iphone app as well as the website need to send info to webservice using encrypted query strings

the web service then decrypts this and processes the info further

wanted to know the simplest way to achieve this. is there some free and ready to use binary available with an easy to use api to achieve this?

encryption needs to be as secure as possible

edited: currently we use AES on the website and webservice front

Security :: Encryption Algorithm - Encryption Of Data Required In The Coding?

Sep 16, 2010

Not sure if I'm posting the question in the right category.

1) I'm working in a project where encryption of data is high priority. Could some one suggest what would be the best encryption method to protect data from being cracked.

I'm using TCP/IP protocol.

2) Is HTTPS totally secured. If I'm using HTTPS, does that mean that there is no encryption of data required in the coding?

.NET Web.config Encryption Failing?

Feb 15, 2011

Here is what I do:

//First delete
aspnet_regiis -pz MyKeyName
//Create the container
aspnet_regiis -pc MyKeyName -exp
//Install the key into a machine-level RSA key provider
aspnet_regiis -pi MyKeyName pathToKeyFile
aspnet_regiis -pef "connectionStrings" -prov pathToWebConfigFile

//So that's all good so far. If I want I can now decrypt which runs just fine on the same machine:
aspnet_regiis -pdf "connectionStrings"

I now take the Encrypted file and bring it to another machine and instal the same key (got from exporting my key using aspnet_regiis -px "MyKeyName" "C:MyKeyName.xml" -pri).

Now when I run the same decryption command I get an error " Decryption failed... Bad Data..."

Configuration :: Custom Config Files Encryption

Mar 24, 2011

I have a couple of configuration files flxConnection.config and flxSecurity.config files which are being referenced from the Machine.config file like below.

<securitySettings configSource="flxSecurity.config" />
<connectionStrings configSource="flxConnection.config" />

I would like to encrypt the files (a) flxSecurity.config and (b) flxConnection.config using the RSAProtectedConfigurationProvider using a custom RSA key, which can be deployed to other servers. How is that possible? If possible, looked at a variety of stuff in the internet and they all seem to be referring to either Web.config or Machine.config encryption which is pretty straight-forward. This is how the flxConnection.config looks like,

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="data source=.SQLEXPRESS;Integrated
Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|aspnetdb.mdf;User Instance=true"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

This is how the flxSecurity.config looks like,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<add key="APC_APP_ID" value="apcrpt"/>

Auto Encryption Of Web.config Connection String?

Apr 20, 2010

I want to encrypt the connection string in web.config, the problem is each time a developer changes the connection string in web.config and publishes, it needs to be encrypted every time in the web server. Is there any way that the connection string can encrypted automatically every time someone publishes it?

Note :- All of us work on our local machines other than the server. So encryption using local machine key is not an option.

Security :: Upgraded .Net From 1.1 To 2.0 - MD5 Encryption Is Different?

Mar 19, 2010

I inherited a ASP.Net website. Some changes need to be implemented. The login for the application is encrypted using the md5cryptoserviceprovider class. After upgrading to 2.0, the password is no longer encrypted the same as when it was 1.1.

I left the 1.1 virtual directory and it's still working. On the same box, I loaded the 2.0 code and setup a new virtual directory (which isn't encrypting the same as 1.1).

I copied the section below from the 1.1 machine.config section into the web.config and the 2.0 machine.config.

<machineKey validationKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" decryptionKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" validation="SHA1"/>

Here is the code that is generating the hash.

MD5CryptoServiceProvider encryptionServiceProvider = new MD5CryptoServiceProvider();

var bytes = ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(inputString);
