Windows.Security.Cryptography RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,
    I've been trying for a very long time to create a windows phone/Universal app that I can Encrypt/Decrypt a file, or contents of a file.  I have written a VB.NET app that does this.  The app Encrypts/Decrypts a file using AES with a supplied password (256 Bit Hash), as well as an initialization vector contained within the file.

    This all works wonderfully ; but uses the System.Security.Cryptography namespace.  This name space is not supported for Windows Phone or Universal Apps.  Windows.Security.Cryptography is supported; but I've had a very bad time trying to get it to work.  I've referenced both VB.NET and C# code to no avail.
