asymmetric encryption RRS feed

  • Question

  • I will deploying a silverlight application to a client soon. For this application we want to control the users that can access our system, i.e. if we agree to only 5 named users being able to access the system, we dont want them to be able to fiddle with the database tables and add anolther themselves. Thus I was thinking that whenver one the users logs in we can do some kind of check against some encrypted value in the database to see if there are valid.

    Likewise if agree to them being granted another user for access we will send them a an encrypted code that they insert against the user.

    Thus is it feasible/possible to use assymetric encryption and leave the rpivate key with client so that they can only decrypt and not encrypt?

    I ask as in most cases it is the public key that you leave with clients.

    Many Thanks
