From the Back Cover

Learn how to make your .NET applications secure!

Security and cryptography, while always an essential part of the computing industry, have seen their importance increase greatly in the last several years. Microsoft's .NET Framework provides developers with a powerful new set of tools to make their applications secure. NET Security and Cryptography is a practical and comprehensive guide to implementing both the security and the cryptography features found in the .NET platform. The authors provide numerous clear and focused examples in both C# and Visual Basic .NET, as well as detailed commentary on how the code works. They cover topics in a logical sequence and context, where they are most relevant and most easily understood. All of the sample code is available online at <www.objectinnovations.com/library/books/books_dotnet.html>.

This book will allow developers to:

  • Develop a solid basis in the theory of cryptography, so they can understand how the security tools in the .NET Framework function
  • Learn to use symmetric algorithms, asymmetric algorithms, and digital signatures
  • Master both traditional encryption programming as well as the new techniques of XML encryption and XML signatures
  • Learn how these tools apply to ASP.NET and Web Services security

Too many books on the topic simply overload the reader with details. This book follows a simple progression in each chapter that makes it easy to read and understand. Ditto with the examples which are written with the same clarity.

2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sudhakar_MVP on October 13, 2004
Format: Paperback
Well I can't stop writing a review on this book even thought I read only few chapters. The book that I am currently reading is incidently the World's first book on ".NET Secuirty". I am very glad to know that this book may go as a de-facto for students who want to learn .net from security perspective which can lead to a very good programming world of .NET in future as well. As a Microsoft MVP, I had got a chance to observe the community and students around in close, and I got to found one interesting thing amongst students. That is nothing but an intution to break or hack the software. So I learnt that only students can think about security right from the first line of thier code. Since the student community is slowly moving towards .NET development, there is a very strong need of these kind of books to make them write secure code right from the beginning.

The recent initiatives on Trustworthy computing from Microsoft are also very welcome in this perspective. This could help most of the developer to think twice before they write some code which interacts with public systems like internet.

The current book that I am reading (well..to improve my skills in writing secure code ;-)) is "The .NET Security and Cryptography" by Mr. Gnana Arun Ganesh and Peter Thorsteinson. I found this book as very different to read because, right from the first chapter, it made me think like a hacker which is very unlikely of my mindset as a developer. But as this book's preface denotes an old proverb "Think like a fish, if you wanna catch it", the authors of this book tried thier level best to implement the same wherever it is possible. Thanks Guys.

The coolest part of this book is it's practical approach towards the problems in security.
