Encrypting Records using RijndaelManaged method

In this blog I will told you that how to encrypt records using RijndaelManaged method. I had created RegendelCryptoServiceProvider class which have EncryptRecords method is used to encrypt records.

/// <summary>

    /// This class is used to encrypt records

    /// </summary>

    public class RegendelCryptoServiceProvider


        //This will work as a private key which is used to encrypt.

        private static string Key = "84B63809-D26F-4C45-B22E-9414AB51B018";

        //This will work as a password which is used to encrypt.

        private static byte[] Password = { 0, 1, 0x12, 0xAF, 0x23, 4, 6 };

        /// <summary>

        /// EncryptRecords method accept records which needs to

        /// be encrypted and return an encrypted records.

        /// </summary>

        /// <param name="recordsToBeEncrypted"></param>

        /// <returns></returns>

        public static string EncryptRecords(string recordsToBeEncrypted)


            //Create an object of RijndaelManaged class.

            RijndaelManaged rijendalManaged = new RijndaelManaged();

            //Retrive input records in byte format.

            byte[] convertedText = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(recordsToBeEncrypted);

            //Create a strong key so it is hard to detect.

            byte[] securityKey = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(Key.Length.ToString());

            //Create a password for encryption.

            PasswordDeriveBytes secretKey = new PasswordDeriveBytes(Password, securityKey);

            //Create a 16 bit encrypter from existing secret key.

            ICryptoTransform Encryptor = rijendalManaged.CreateEncryptor(secretKey.GetBytes(32), secretKey.GetBytes(16));

            // Create a MemoryStream that is going to hold the encrypted bytes

            MemoryStream memoryStream = new MemoryStream();

            // Create a CryptoStream through which we are going to be processing our data.

            // CryptoStreamMode.Write means that we are going to be writing data

            // to the stream and the output will be written in the MemoryStream

            // we have provided. (always use write mode for encryption)

            CryptoStream cryptoStream = new CryptoStream(memoryStream, Encryptor, CryptoStreamMode.Write);

            // Start the encryption process.

            cryptoStream.Write(convertedText, 0, convertedText.Length);

            // Finish encrypting.


            // Convert our encrypted data from a memoryStream into a byte array.

            byte[] CipherBytes = memoryStream.ToArray();

            // Close both streams.



            // Convert encrypted data into a base64-encoded string.

            // A common mistake would be to use an Encoding class for that.

            // It does not work, because not all byte values can be

            // represented by characters. We are going to be using Base64 encoding

            // That is designed exactly for what we are trying to do.

            string EncryptedData = Convert.ToBase64String(CipherBytes);

            // Return encrypted string.

            return EncryptedData;
