Urgent Help on CAPICOM Decrypt and Encrypt

Dear all,

I'm new to CAPICOM not sure how to use it in C# Web application. As I know, CAPICOM does have a function to decrypt and encrypt some string. The question is, how to use CAPICOM to encrypt and decrypt given string ?

Below is the encrypted string, but how to decrypt it back to original string ?

EncryptedDataClass Crypt1= new CAPICOM.EncryptedDataClass();
Crypt1.SetSecret("MyPassword",CAPICOM_SECRET_TYPE.CAPICOM_SECRET_PASSWORD);
Crypt1.Content = "Some text to encrypt";
string data = Crypt1.Encrypt(CAPICOM_ENCODING_TYPE.CAPICOM_ENCODE_BASE64);
this.Label1.Text = data;

Please give some example on method to decrypt.

Thanks in advance


Cheers,
yymae

Use the Decrypt method of the encrypteddata class.. You will have to specify same secret password that used for encrypting.

string decrypteddata = Crypt1.Decrypt(data);

where "data" is your encrypted data.

BTW, why are you using CAPICOM, when you have System.Security.Cryptography ?

Cheers
Mohan
