Cryptography with VB.net

I am working with VB.net Visual Studios, and am looking for some insight on furthering my knowledge with encryption and cryptography.

Does anyone have a basic run down, or even a cheat-sheet of cryptography functionality with VB.net?  I have a basic understanding, but I would like to get a more comprehensive understanding of how I can utilize the cryptography function for some new projects.

Any advice is appreciated.  Thanks.

Pretty much anything having to do with cryptography is in the System.Security.Cryptography namespace.

Here's an overview of the cryptographic services offered by the framework.

And here's the API documentation.
