Equivalent Library from System.Security to Windows.Security RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am in the midst of porting an application from the .NET Framework to Windows Universal Apps.  Is there any out of the box function for the classes CngKey and ECDsaCng, in Windows.Security because I cannot find anything from searching? Or is there a way I can implement this functionality?

  • Hi yetanotherposter,

    System.Security.Cryptography is the same as Windows.Security.

    And I don't see an implementation of  CngKey and ECDsaCng in Windows.Security.Cryptography or something similar. See below:
