Why should I use the Cryptography Application Block? We shouldn't keep the keys in the code, but in an external file. I do not understand that. It is so easy to get the key with the EntLib configuration tool even if the external file is encrypted with DPAPI.

What is the most secure way to encrypt my files (in a disconnected mode - without network or Internet)?
