Chapter 17. Cryptographic Keys

In this chapter, we discuss how the .NET Framework supports the cryptographic keys that we have used in the previous chapters. We explain the importance of keys and the decisions you must make in deciding how you will create them. We provide examples of how to program the .NET support for cryptographic keys and finish our coverage of cryptography by extending our ElGamal implementation to support session key exchange formatting.
