Definition

Warning

This API is now obsolete.

Encrypts data and/or appends a hash-based message authentication code (HMAC).

Public Shared Function Encode (data As Byte(), protectionOption As MachineKeyProtection) As String
Parameters
data
Byte[]

The data to encrypt.

protectionOption
MachineKeyProtection MachineKeyProtection MachineKeyProtection MachineKeyProtection

Indicates whether the data parameter should be encrypted and/or hashed.

Returns

The encrypted value, the input value with an HMAC appended, or the result of encrypting the input value with an HMAC appended.

Examples

For a code example, see the MachineKey class overview.
