KeysDepot class offers a convenient interface for making calls to the Private Keys Depot.
KeysDepot class is a part of Skater.Cloud.Vault namespace. You can use these keys and perform these operations by using Skater Private Keys Depot directly, by using cloud web interface, or by using KeysDepot Class integrations within your developed .NET application source code. The API is .NET idiomatic Client library for Rustemsoft Cloud services.
With Skater Private Keys Depot key management system you are the ultimate custodian of your data, you can manage cryptographic keys in the cloud in the same ways you do on-premises, and you have a provable and monitorable root of trust over your data.Cloud Skater Private Keys Depot allows you to create, import, and manage cryptographic keys and perform cryptographic operations in a single centralized cloud service that can be utilized .NET development projects.
Even if not, access to the code is often easier for an attacker to achieve than direct compromise of the application - the entire development team becomes part of the attack surface. So, we're convinced we need to get rid of them, but how can we check for them at scale across hundreds or thousands of applications?
When valuable customer data is at stake, it's worthwhile to put in the required effort to ensure that a foolproof encryption system is in place. Several other security measures are necessary too, but when they fail -- as often they do -- you would want your customer data to be encrypted. Encryption should be indecipherable and impossible to break for hackers. Ideal method of storing sensitive hardcoded values in .NET app source codes is using Skater Private Keys Depot mangement system. It's that simple.
Most symmetric encryption schemes have three inputs: the data being encrypted, a randomly generated IV (initialization vector), and finally, the encryption key itself. In the worst case, if the code is public, everyone can read the key. The key of course must be kept secret. Encryption should be at the heart of every product or service that stores any kind of customer data. But building this can pose a significant challenge to app developers. Having obtained the keys, the attacker may no longer need to compromise the application at all, and the breach can go completely undetected since there is nothing in the logs when encrypted data is decrypted offline.
Hardcoding the keys is also a problem for key rollover, and for cryptographic agility. However, in many encryption implementations, the cryptography and the key protection are woefully inadequate.Including passwords or cryptographic key material in source code is a major security risk for a number of reasons. The IV itself need not be a secret, but you need to make sure it is randomly generated.
