There doesn't seem to be much information on the PasswordVault but it seems to provide for local encryption of credentials.

There are references to it in this source code and this blog.

The reason I'm asking is so I can understand the platform specific features (Windows based OS) and when the code is ported to other platforms using a cross platform compiler such as Xamarin

    Perhaps this should be on stackoverflow? Seems a programming question to me. – Neil Smithline Dec 22 '15 at 17:56
  • I think you may be looking more for information on credential lockers - see here for more high-level information on credential lockers: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj554668.aspx – jth Dec 22 '15 at 20:15
  • @NeilSmithline No, while it does have programming implications, it's a fit here. – Xander Dec 22 '15 at 21:33
  • the github link for PasswordVault says that it requires windows 10. Why do you feel that it is not Platform Specific enough? – JOW May 27 '16 at 14:13

the PasswordVault uses the Windows.Security.Credentials namespace. As of today, this namespace is unavailable in Mono. so the other most popular cross platform compiler just won't work for this feature.

  • I'm sorry, but this does not answer the question what security features this class has. – Philipp May 21 '16 at 19:42
