[Mono-dev] Key derivation and encryption in cross platform environments

Hi all,

Can someone help me out with these two things please:

Which .NET Encryption classes does Mono support that will work cross
platform? eg. I encrypt on Windows using .NET and the Linux class can
decrypt the same file and visa versa.

In the same vein, how can I derive a key from a password that will
yield the same result on Windows and Linux?

I have tried using DeriveBytes but it seemed to give different results
on Win/Mono last time I tried...
