Cryptography works in Web and Store RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working in application , where i receive authentication information as encrypted.  Who do i write code which works both in store app and Asp.net?

    Requirement is encrypt and decrypt a text or visa versa in store and web.

    Any help appreciated.

  • I would start with an algorithm first: Define which one you'll need to use for your data.  ASP.NET has a lot more flexibility than an app store, so start with app store encryption reading on MSDN, then work that back to ASP.NET.

    Next, build a console app (instead of jumping right to ASP.NET) that takes something encrypted, and build a sample Windows Store app that decrypts it.  Ensure that very simple process works well before you move to actual ASP.net and a more complicated store.  If you're good at ASP.NET, and specifically debugging web code - you may jump right to ASP.NET and skip the console application.

    Start small, focus on good encryption, then incorporate them into a good app on both platforms.
