Encryption Without Secrets

If you need to protect private information for some period of time then in some cases you could use simplified encryption techniques that don't require certificates. In the article, "Encrypting Without Secrets," Keith Brown, cofounder of Pluralsight (a Microsoft .NET training provider) shows you how to generate a random secret key and then use Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to encrypt the data you want to protect, and then how to use RSACryptoServiceProvider to encrypt the AES key. His techniques are based on Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.
