Software Security Tools for .NET
Obviex™ offers two products:
CipherLite.NET™ and CipherSafe.NET™.
Both products can help protect confidential data -
such as database connection strings or passwords -
used by Windows® applications running on .NET platform.
CipherLite.NET™ is a freeware product.
It comes with a GUI tool and a .NET library allowing developers to encrypt, decrypt, and hash application settings.
The encrypted data can be later stored in the application configuration files or other media.
CipherLite.NET™ supports encryption with Rijndael (AES) symmetric keys and DPAPI,
as well as a number of most common hashing algorithms,
such as MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, HMAC SHA-1, and others.
CipherSafe.NET™ is a commercial product, which is also available as a shareware.
It can be used to protect such application secrets as database connection strings, passwords, and encryption keys.
CipherSafe.NET™ takes full responsibility for managing confidential application profiles for a variety of Windows® applications
including ASP and ASP.NET applications, Web services, executable files, libraries, and directories.
CipherSafe.NET™ requires minimum involvement on the part of both application developers and administrators.
Both products require hardly any learning.
An average user should be able to enable and configure a .NET application using either tool in 5-10 minutes.
