Book: .NET Security and Cryptography
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Security and cryptography, while always an essential part of the computing industry, have seen their importance increase greatly in the last several years. Microsoft’s .NET Framework provides developers with a powerful new set of tools to make their applications secure. .NET Security and Cryptography is a practical and comprehensive guide to implementing both the security and the cryptography features found in the .NET platform. The authors provide numerous clear and focused examples in both C# and Visual Basic .NET, as well as detailed commentary on how the code works. They cover topics in a logical sequence and context, where they are most relevant and most easily understood.
This book will allow developers to:
Develop a solid basis in the theory of cryptography, so they can understand how the security tools in the .NET Framework function
Learn to use symmetric algorithms, asymmetric algorithms, and digital signatures
Master both traditional encryption programming as well as the new techniques of XML encryption and XML signatures
Learn how these tools apply to ASP.NET and Web Services security
