Hello

I am using a Sockets communication to connect a client with a server.
But how can I protect it with encryption?

Thanks

One simple way to do this is to encrypt / decrypt the data yourself, before you send it, and after you receive it on the other end.

Check this article (quite basic) to see what your general options are for encryption in .Net

Once you know which method you prefer, and is more suitable to your case, I can help you with the implementation.

Also, if you tell us more about the particular scenario you're in, I can help you choose the best encryption method.
