aspnet_setreg with other data
Posts: n/a
I can use aspnet_setreg to securely store the credentials to be used by
the ASPNET identity, but can the same technique be used to store data
for other custom config keys? i.e., does ASP.Net understand what to do
if I have this in the web.config?

<add key="myUser"
value="registry:HKLM\Software\SOME\REG\PATH\ASPNET _SETREG,userName"/>
<add key="myPassword"
value="registry:HKLM\Software\SOME\REG\PATH\ASPNET _SETREG,password"/>

Will that produce the expected values?

Why not try it! However I think this syntax is specialised for the
<identity> element, and uses the Data Protection API for encryption.
