Federal Developer Evangelist, Robert Shelton, Jr., takes you through a short (8 minute) demonstration of how Encrypt portions of your web.config with ASP 2.0 (Visual Studio 2005). This walkthrough shows you how to encrypt two sections of your web.config (AppSettings and ConnectionStrings) with the DPAPI (DataProtectionConfigurationProvider). In addition to these two sections, you can also encrypt your Identity and SessionState sections.
