@ewanm89 He's referring to my software calling advapi.dll, which is part of Windows and contains Microsoft CSP. With CSP I can't use a library like OpenSSL. I'm calling into the operating system on the end users' computer, which is controlled by GPO.

It's Windows only. Verified is good. Can I check on that? Google isn't helping.

No. The software itself is not encrypted at all. It is only processing a great deal of personal data over a network. My comment about key verification is only a practical one.

I updated it. Still curious about RijndaelManaged and AesManaged.

Also, how do you generate RSA keys from RijndaelManaged or AesManaged? Those classes are all about symmetric ciphers. I'm talking about public-key cryptography.

I'm... not asking about building my own cryptography. I'm actually asking which prebuilt suite to use. Other than that, what I'm doing with it is straightforward textbook stuff. :-) Nothing new.
