This topic describes how to develop applications using the Cryptography Application Block. It explains how to modify the configuration of the application block to perform particular tasks and how to use the application block for particular scenarios, such as encrypting data. This topic assumes that you are using the application block in its original state, without extending it. (To learn how to add functionality, see Extending and Modifying the Cryptography Application Block.) This section includes the following topics:
All application blocks ship as binary assemblies and as source code. If you want to use the source code, you must compile it before you can use the QuickStarts and configuration tools. To learn how to compile the Enterprise Library source code, see Building Enterprise Library from the Source Code.
