Using Encrypted Web.config File?

Jun 18, 2010

My aim is to make the web.config not readable by external users, but my application should be able to access it. Is there any way to do this?

I have tried the following way, but how to set the application to use string instead of web.config?

I want to encrypt my web.config file so that others do not open the file using any editor like notepad. But my application should be able to use the same web.config file. I could encrypt the web.config file and decrypt it inside the application and I saved the entire web.config to a string file. Now I want to use this string variable instead of web.config(now in encrypted form, which cannot be accessed by the application).

C# - Use Connectionstring From Web.config In Source Code File?

Mar 15, 2011

I know this might be a very basic question, but maybe thats why im having problems finding the answer. Right now I'm creating database connections in my source files by doing something like this:

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=...Password=...);
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(String.Format("SELECT * FROM Table;"), con);
SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();

But this means that if I choose to change databases it will be a major pain in the ass. Do you guys know how to use the connection string from a web.config file instead?

Keep That Password Encrypted In Code While Checking It Against A Data Store?

Jan 18, 2011

Even with https enabled, you can write a password to the event log in code-behind. Any way to keep that password encrypted in code while you're checking it against a data store?

(using Login control)

(couldn't add comment to Andrew's answer, so I'm putting it here)
NTLM uses the username/password of the machine the user is logged into right? For this, I was thinking using ActiveDirectory on the server as the data store. It would have a diferrent un/pw than what the user is currently signed in to their machine as.

DataSource Controls :: Store Data From XML File To Table In Database?

May 14, 2010

I am trying to store data from an XML file to a table in my database, but I keep getting the same error.

This is my code from the cs file:


And this is my error:

Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_Areas'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.Areas'.

The statement has been terminated.

In my XML file I have both existing rows and new rows for the database table. I'm guessing I have to do something to sort out the the rows that are not already in the database, but so far I have been unsuccessful to figure this out.

ADO.NET :: How To Use Connectionstring From Web.config

Jan 2, 2011

I have a connectionstring in my web.config <add name="HeimkinoVerbindungszeichenfolge1" connectionString="Data Source=SERVER;Initial Catalog=Heimkino;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=*******;"providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

This itself is working when using eg the SQLDataSource for a Gridview or similar.

Now I need to access this DB with different scripts and work with that database.

Eg I need to run this comand in a page_load against the DB


to remove old events from the database

For other pages I need something like


for some userauthentication things this should just create a recordset I can work with then.

Is there a way to realize this using the connectionstring in the web.config (and if so, How???)

If this will not work, how can I run such queries?
