What algorithm and using what encryption key does aspnet_regiis -pef use RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I run the command below, how does it encrypt the section? Does it encrypt it with the machine key? What machine key is used and what is the algorithm?

    I felt like 5 years ago this was much more documented.

    aspnet_regiis -pef "connectionStrings" "C:\pathToConfig"

  • Not only machine key, also RSA key readable by your worker process.
