comment AES GCM symmetric encryption of data at rest in c#, ciphertext much longer than plaintext
Great answer, thank you. I didn't realize the base64 added to the length to the extent that it does.

comment AES GCM symmetric encryption of data at rest in c#, ciphertext much longer than plaintext
Although the question does talk about specifics (and therefore might belong elsewhere) it mainly deals with the general concept of cipher text vs plaintext length so I figured I'd try here. If it should be elsewhere feel free to migrate it.

comment Generating a cryptographically secure, many-time use, symmetric encryption key
I decided to instead use the .net AesManaged class and simply extract the key it creates under the assumption that that key will be at least as secure as the above method
