aspnet_regiis permissions needed

Posts: n/a
following scenario:

I am using aspnet_regiis to encrypt parts of my web.config. this works fine
on the development machine. Now I move to the integration machine which is
based on a hardened server image. The user I am logged in with is in the
local administrators group. Creating the key container succeeds, but when I
try to encrypt the web.config section, I get the error:

Failed to encrypt the section 'appSettings' using provider
'RsaProtectedConfigurationProvider'. Error message from the provider: The RSA
key container could not be opened.

With a second account that is in the same domain as the first and as well in
the local administrators group. When I execute the exact same steps (create
container and then encrypt) everything works as expected.

My suspision now is that in the hardened server image a specific right was
explicitly granted to the second administrative account and not to the first

Can anyone elaborate on the specific permissions needed for an account when
encrypting with aspnet_regiis?

Any help is strongly appreciated.
