Several years back, I had written a small review on a .NET Encryption library called 'XCrypt'. I have also been recommending this library to most of them in discussion forums since it has an elegant presentation and wrapper on the cryptography layer of .NET base class library. Unfortunately, the original article referred in the article has an update date of 2003 which was turning back several users. Today I saw another writer publishing an article about two additional encryption algorithms with their implementation in C#. It just struck me, why shouldn't I take a proactive stand in putting the new kid into XCrypt and giving it a new lease of life.

My first humble initiative is here (a query to CodeProject webmaster) and as per their directions, I have written the new XCrypt article as an alternative proposal to the classic legendary XCrypt. I am glad to have done a small service to the legendary encryption library of .NET.

The URL for the new article is available here. Incidentally the accompanying test application in the application turns to be one of my maiden venture in Windows forms programming. Hence do feel to share your observations, bug reports, healthy comments and constructive criticisms towards the same. Due to pressures of time, you may not be elected for a personalized response but rest assured that due diligence attention would be given your suggestion with an appropriate feasibility analysis towards incorporating the points in your note.
