Permissions to use RSA Machine key to read encrypted app config RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an console application running under a service account. When I encrypt the connectionStrings section using the RSAProtectedConfigurationProvider the application will not run and throws an "EventType clr20r3" error in the Application log.  I suspect that this is because the service account lacks the permissions to access the key. What are the necessary permssions and how can I grant them to that account?

  • What exactly is the exception thrown? (not the EventType log entry)
    Catch the exception under debugger, or in your app and print it somewhere.
