Don't access your config files manually. Use the ConfigManager class instead.

ste5an: You are absolutely correct. But for this scenario  I need to read manually.

The following example shows how to read the attributes of the innerXml:
using System;
using System.Xml;

namespace XmlExample
{
	class Program
	{
		static void Main(string[] args)
		{
			XmlDataDocument doc = new XmlDataDocument();
			doc.Load("Connection.exe.config");

			XmlElement root = doc.DocumentElement;
			XmlNodeList elemList = root.GetElementsByTagName("connectionStrings");
			foreach (XmlNode item in elemList)
			{
				Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Root Node - {0}; contains {1}",item.Name ,item.InnerXml));
				if (item.HasChildNodes)
				{
					foreach (XmlNode child in item.ChildNodes)
					{
						Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Child Node - {0} of Parent Node - {1}; contains {2}", child.Name, child.ParentNode.Name, child.InnerXml));
						if (child.Attributes.Count > 0)
						{
							Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Child Node - {0} contains attributes.", child.Name));
							foreach (XmlAttribute attribute in child.Attributes)
								Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Attribute {0} of Child Node - {1}; contains {2}", attribute.Name, child.Name, attribute.InnerXml));
						}
					}
				}
			}
			Console.ReadLine();
		}
	}
}

You are alreading reading your string. But I guess you want to decrypt this string.

Normally you would use an Protected Configuration Provider.

The problem is quite simple: I don't recognize this encryption schema...

So hard to tell. How was this config file generated?

@ste5an - Offhand it looks like an encoded public or private key generated using the RSACryptoServiceProvider.

ste5an - Application configuration file sitting in outside my application and more than 5 application sharing the same config file. So I have used TripleDES  encryption and generated the keys. During the run time I will decrypt the connection string.

@Varshini - Have you looked at the code I provided to see if that leads you down the right path?  If needed I could provide more information.
