password in VC++/MFC application RRS feed

  • Question

  • SecureString class(in System.Security namespace) in .Net, represents text that should be kept confidential.

    It is used to store sensitive information such as a password, credit card number etc.

    Is there any type/structure available in unmanaged VC++ or MFC, similar to SecureString that can be used to store password?

    Is there any mechanism/algorithm available which could suffice this requirement?
