Cryptography in .NET

by Sander Gerz January 30, 2006 08:31

This is a Dutch article I wrote on the use of symmetric and asymmetric encryption techniques in .NET. It's not revolutionary, and probably you've seen numerous examples. But if you haven't, you may also want to check out the sourcecode so you can play with it yourself. Here's a screenshot:

The keysizes are fixed in this example, but there are easily modified if you want. When you do so, I'd recommend this page, to calculate how long your key length will protect your information. The location of the public and private keys is selectable, so you can take the private key with you on a USB stick if you want.

[update: since I've upgraded Technolog to Community Server, I needed to change the links in this post.]

Tech-Ed Europe Cancelled!

by Sander Gerz January 24, 2006 11:00

Last week I heard someone saying that Tech-Ed Europe was about to be cancelled. I couldn't believe it, with Tech-Ed Europe being around for over 10 years. But, it's true! (beware: Dutch link).

There will be a developers conference, but it's in Barcelona, in autumn, just a week before IT Forum, which is more focussed on operations. Tech-Ed Europe has in the past been more of a developers' conference instead of a conference for both IT pros and developers, because of IT Forum. It's now official.

Well, all the more reason to attend the DevDays 2006 if you can't wait 10 months to get up to speed with the latest dev technology.

DevDays 2006 in the Netherlands

by Sander Gerz January 19, 2006 08:10

DevDays

As Alex found out, Microsoft has updated the page for the Dutch Developer Days and my name is also incorrect on the sessions page. We're both doing an ASP.NET 2.0 session, though his one is a level 400 while mine is 300. In my session we'll be looking at, or working with rather, the provider model in ASP.NET as it relates to security. Working, because I intend to mainly build, show and run code. There will undoubtedly be a couple of slides, to put it all in perspective. It's weird to see my name so close to Scott Guthrie's. In fact, there are quite a number of celebrities doing very interesing sessions so there's every reason to attend.

What I'd really like to know is, when attending a sessions that deals with code, more than with slides, would you prefer to see the presenter manually typing the code or would you rather see him walking through code that has already been written? Or... would you not attend this type of a session?
