VB.net Generating a security key

In the following demo application


I am unsure of two things: The Generate Key part

Would I enter a name in there to get the key, then hide that area

and send to a User who would enter the name and password?

As said in the article:

The third group box titled “Generate Key” lets you create a key. Enter a value in the client name text box and the key will be generated each time the value is modified. This key is generated using the pass phrase. This feature would be useful in a small standalone application that only you would have to generate a key to send to clients when they pay you.

The last group box titled “Validate key” is used to test your key. Enter a name and a key (created in the previous step) and press the test key. If the values are valid, encrypted information will be persisted into the registry for later usage. If not, the yellow label will warn the user.
