I am using
aspnet_regiis.exe to Encrypt a connectionStrings on an
ASP.Net application. The application in productions runs on a
I run the following command to create a
RSA encryption key with the export option.
aspnet_regiis -pc "CustomKeys" -exp
Then I encrypt my
connectionStrings using another command. Then I export the
RSA encryption key
aspnet_regiis -px "CustomKeys" "C:\CustomKeys.xml" -pri
Then I import the key on the Server Farm Machine.
aspnet_regiis -pi "CustomKeys" "C:\CustomKeys.xml"
Then I am told to delete the file
My question is where is that private key stored after it is imported and deleted? I am using a Windows 10 machine. And will it still be exportable? Is it safe?
