Our conn strs reside in an external file <connectionStrings onfigSource="ConfigurationConnectionStrings.config" />Is there a way to encrypt this external file either using aspnet_regiis or System.Configuration?

Unable To Read Config Settings From External Config Files

Sep 1, 2010

We are experiencing some strange behaviour on one of our ASP.NET web servers (Windows 2003 64-bit). After some activity, two third-party controls are unable to run correctly. One is log4net (it does not write error messages out) and the other is a menu control (it displays eval message instead of picking up its license). The one common thread is that both controls pick up their config from external config files (linked to from web.config).

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this or experienced this in any way. Is it related to file/folder rights? The server has been running fine for a while and just started exhibiting this behaviour. Perhaps it occurs around the time the worker processes are recycled.

C# - Programmatically Edit External Config Files At Runtime?

Mar 1, 2011

By external config files, I mean .config files other than web.config. I've seen all the examples on how to edit web.config at runtime, but I want to edit a config file referenced by a configSource for appSettings. I want to modify only the external file and I will handle the app recycle.

I would like to use a built-in class to deal with the edits, but if the only option is a manual File open/parse, etc, then sobeit.

The general behind all this being a Settings page that is viewed at app startup, user sets their particulars and then saves the changes, then the real app starts up. quick and easy install app/configure page, so I'd like to leverage .config if at all possible.

FOLLOWUP - Quick Snippet to use XmlDocument to change an appSetting key value:

string path = Server.MapPath("~/my.config");
XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
doc.Load(path);
XmlNode node = doc.SelectSingleNode("/appSettings/add[@key='myKey']");
node.Attributes[1].Value = "myVal";
XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(path, null);
writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
doc.WriteTo(writer);
writer.Flush();
writer.Close();

Security :: How To Encrypt The ConnectionStrings In File Web.config

Mar 15, 2011

I fully followed the steps in this page [URL]

look at the step 5 at "Using the Example Provider in an ASP.NET Application" element , I entered the command "

aspnet_regiis.exe -pe "connectionStrings" -app "/SessionState" -prov "TripleDESProvider"
" at the windows command line, it asked me "The protection provider 'TripleDESProvider' was not found"

I make sure the files keys.snk and keys.txt are in the same folder and the file web.config is correct. Who can tell me the reason for the error and how do I handle with it?

Security :: Unable To Encrypt Web.config ConnectionStrings In Web Application Project

Nov 28, 2010

I'm all set on the server side with the RSA key pair installed. Where I'm hung up is trying to get the job done on the web.config file ... can't seem to get the aspnet_regiis command string right. I am using the command string provided by the web host (DiscountAsp.net). Most (all) of the examples I read use a website on the development machine. I actually registered my project in IIS and tried that but it didn't work. In any case I would rather not have to go to the hassle of registering a project in IIS anyway if I can avoid it.

Details:

My web application project is in a folder on my local machine:

D:Projects<project name>

This is most recent (failed) attempt to use aspnet_regiis:

C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv4.0.30319aspnet_regiis.exe -pe "connectionStrings" "D:Projects<project name>"

Is it possible to just do this manually by looking at the NetFrameworkConfigurationKey_xxxxx.xml file and entering the values? Seems like it should be do-able except I'm not sure how to parse the xml file for the correct values.

On a related note, when I add the following code to web.config it "announces" that "The keyContainerName attribute is not allowed". Ditto useMachineContainer

[Code]....

Security :: How To Encrypt Connection String In Web.config On A Shared Hosting

I have looked for ideas on this and read several posts but none of them seems to be because the problem is that web.com (my host) doesnt allow us to update web.config on their server programmatically. I can use example codes and encrypt them on my local pc but heres the error i get when I run them on the live site:

An error occurred loading a configuration file: Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission, mscorlib, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed. (machine.config)

C# - Encrypt The Connection Strings In Web.config?

Dec 20, 2010

I'm trying to encrypt the connection strings in my web.config. I'm following:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2w117ede.aspx

however when I get to the part with the command:

aspnet_regiis -pe "connectionStrings" -app "/MyApplication" -prov "MyProvider"

it keeps complaining:

"The configuration for the virtual path '/MyApplication' and site 'Default Web Site' cannot be opened

Failed to map the path '/myapplication'
Failed!

I'm fairly sure I've followed the instructions correctly. I created the project named 'MyApplication' directly in the 'C:' root.

Perhaps I should be following a different set of instructions?

Can A Web.config Read From An External Xml File

Mar 9, 2010

I have to duplicate some settings (like connection string) between a web.config file that a WCF host uses and a web.config file that a web client uses.

In the interest of not duplicating, can I have both the web.configs read from a separate xml file? The two web.configs can be entirely in different solutions/projects so I guess this is not possible, but wanted to get other's opinion.

PS: I do understand I can use a database to store all the config settings.
