Remarks

This algorithm supports key lengths of 128, 192, or 256 bits; defaulting to 256 bits. This algorithm supports block sizes of 128, 192, or 256 bits; defaulting to 128 bits (Aes-compatible).

The Rijndael algorithm is the predecessor of Aes. You should use the Aes class instead of RijndaelManaged. For more information, see the entry The Differences Between Rijndael and AES in the .NET Security blog.
