comment What makes a secure smartcard secure? Is contactless/RFID better?
Interesting. I thought RFID would allow a passive attacker to use proximity attacks to get info off the card. I saw a few aluminum cases that prevent this, but thought a card with an on/off switch may be better. Any thoughts?

comment When should one use RSACryptoServiceProvider vs AESCryptoServiceProvider
Thank you. I kinda assumed this was the answer, but see many people recommend RSA crypto provider by mistake, and not the AES. I suppose really only "asked" the question because I want people aware of the similarities, and differences between the two providers.

Could a solution be to double encrypt data? Two different vendors?
