PasswordDeriveBytes.GetBytes RRS feed

  • Question

  • This method is marked as obsolete ( Rfc2898DeriveBytes is recommended to be used instead) 

    Anybody knows what are the chances of this method to be removed in the next .NET version ?

  • Obsoleted items generally are removed at the next major release of the CLR.  For example any items marked as obsolete in v4 will likely be removed when v5 is released.  This shouldn't matter too much though because even when the next release comes out you still will have to update your code to use it before you'll be impacted.  That is plenty of time to remove the dependency.
