[Mono-dev] Mono.Security on Compat Framework

The company I work for, OpenNETCF, already did a port of the
System.Security.Cryptography namespace for .NET Compact Framework v1.0.
CF v2.0 has a fairly comprehensive implementation OTB, so we removed it
from our product, but you can still get the source for the CF v1.0
implementation from our site. We needed S.S.C for our WSE

Go to smartdeviceframework.com and the version you are looking for is
Smart Device Framework 1.4.

Hi Sebastien,

I think my changes consist of the following:

1. A "compatibility layer". This contains a rough copy of some
namespaces from mono (S.IO, S.Security.Cryptography, S.ComponentModel,
S.Diagnostics, S.Net, S.Runtime.ConstrainedExecution, S.Security,
2. The addition of a utility class which lets one launch a method
asynchronously (ie, different thread), and the usage of this method
wherever neccessary.

Let me know if you're interested...
