On January 26th 2015 I will be doing a talk at the DotNet Notts usergroup in Nottingham UK. The talk will be on Pragmatic Cryptography in .NET. The talk synopsis is as follows.
Data security is something that we as developers have to take seriously when developing solutions for our organizations. Cryptography can be a deeply complicated and mathematical subject but as developers we need to be pragmatic and use what is available to us to secure our data without disappearing down the mathematical rabbit hole.
In this talk Stephen Haunts will take you through what is available in the .NET framework for enterprise desktop and server developers to allow you to securely protect your data to achieve confidentiality, data integrity and non-repudiation of exchanged data. Stephen will cover the following:
Cryptographically secure random number generation.
Hashing and Authenticated Hashes.
Symmetric Encryption with DES, TripleDES, and AES.
The pitfalls of key exchange
Asymmetric Encryption with RSA.
Hybrid Encryption by using Symmetric and Asymmetric encryption together.
