Benefit from Microsoft's robust suite of security and cryptography primitives to create a complete, hybrid encryption scheme that will protect your data against breaches. This highly practical book teaches you how to use the .NET encryption APIs and Azure Key Vault, and how they can work together to produce a robust security solution.
Applied Cryptography in .NET and Azure Key Vault begins with an introduction to the dangers of data breaches and the basics of cryptography. It then takes you through important cryptographic techniques and practices, from hashing and symmetric/asymmetric encryption, to key storage mechanisms. By the end of the book, you’ll know how to combine these cryptographic primitives into a hybrid encryption scheme that you can use in your applications.
Author Stephen Haunts brings 25 years of software development and security experience to the table to give you the concrete skills, knowledge, and code you need to implement the latest encryption standards in your own projects.
