My question is not really related to mono.
I'm writing an application that stores passwords in a mysql database.
I'm using System.Security.Cryptography namespace, and DES simetric
algorithm. When i create a new instance of DESCryptoServiceProvider the
key and IV (initialization vector) are generated randomly. After, i use
these key and IV to crypt and decrypt passwords in the login screen of
Well, this system is safe enough to me, but i have the problem that
where i can to store these key and IV to future use? I could to write IV
and key in hard code in my custom class, but this is not elegant. Is a
good idea to store them in the web.config? If not ¿where can be a good
and safe place to store it?
Any help will be appreciated.
