You do not need to do any extra steps to enable TLS 1.1 or 1.2 support as Click Once will automatically detect which TLS protocol is required at runtime.Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and TLS 1.0 are no longer recommended or supported by some organizations.
Doing so will reduce thread-blocking on a web server and improve scalability of an ASP. The following improvements have been made in the SQL client.
The Windows Cryptography Library (CNG) supports storing persisted symmetric keys on software and hardware devices. NET Framework now exposes this CNG capability, as you can see demonstrated in the example below.
You need to use the concrete implementation classes, such as Aes Cng to use this new capability, as opposed to the more common factory approach, Aes. This requirement is due to key names and key providers being implementation-specific Persisted-key symmetric encryption has been added for the AES and 3DES algorithms, in the Aes Cng Triple DESCng classes, respectively. NET Framework Signed Xml implementation now supports the following SHA-2 Hashing algorithms: You can see an example of signing XML with SHA-256 in the example below.
Always Encrypted is a feature designed to protect sensitive data, such as credit card numbers or national identification numbers that are stored in a database.
It allows clients to encrypt sensitive data inside client applications, never revealing the encryption keys to the database engine.
