Encrypt/Encode, AES, Passphrase, Salt, Most Browser Compatible, ASP.net, Javascript RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1045460610 posted

    I need to pass a hostid in a url string like this  https://attendance.erpise.com/instructorcourse.aspx?hostid=123456 to a web site. The variable is the user id so the web site will need to decode the url and show the user's web page with populated textboxes from the c#, sqlcommand script.

     I have a script for aes encode and decode using URLSearchParams but it's not compatible in Internet Explorer. I have a couple other methods with regex and 64 base encoding. What would be the most browser compatible method for encode/decode for aes, salt, expiring url. Would you use the reference on the web or download it and add it to the asp.net, c# project?
