The following is an excerpt of the configuration file used by the above example.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>  
<configuration>  

  <configProtectedData>  

    <providers>  
      <clear />  
      <add  
         name="TripleDESProtectedConfigurationProvider"   
         type="Samples.Aspnet.TripleDESProtectedConfigurationProvider, protectedconfigurationproviderlib, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,

  </configProtectedData>  

</configuration>  

Remarks

ASP.NET uses providers to perform specific services required by a feature. For example, the membership feature uses a provider to coordinate the persistence of membership data in a database.

In a configuration file, individual providers are added to a providers element within a particular feature section.

The ProviderSettings class represents a particular group of settings that are added to the providers element within a configuration section. Typically the configuration attributes specified by the add directive include a name, type, and other properties.
