Giving back to DIC

Posted 14 February 2010 - 07:10 PM

Hello again everyone. I can't seem to decide what would be better in this situation. I want to give back to Dream in Code but I can never think up a good idea, until now. I want to do a tutorial on using the System.Security.Cryptography namespace in C#. But I am not sure how to structure it. Originally I just planned on showing how to use the AES symmetric cipher to encrypt and decrypt. As I explore more and more of the class though I have found other useful features like password generators and crypto hash functions. So to help me help some of you, what do you think I should do?

1.Just do the AES encrypt decrypt.
2.A multi part tutorial like one on hashing and another on symmetric vs public key crypto.
3.Or a rather large one kind of introducing System.Security.Cryptography.

Or if anyone has a specific one please post it here.

Thanks for your help, I can help or teach some people with this.

I think the multi-parter would be good. Start with one on the AES algorithm, explaining how that works. Then for another, talk about the various encryption styles (symmetric, hashing, public-private key) and when is appropriate to implement each.
