One of my project requirements is to use ISO certified encryption methodologies. Does enterprise library cryptography algorithms follow these standards?

I'm honestly not familiar with the exact ISO certified encryption methodologies and thus, can't answer your question.  I may not be even in the position to say that it does or it doesn't.  We'll try to ask the EntLib team.

Thanks Sarah. Please let me know if you get any information about this from the entlib team.

What is an "ISO certified encryption methodologies"? Do you mean encryption algorithms? The crypto block is just a set of helper methods wrapped around the core .NET framework crypto APIs. We don't implement any crypto algorithms ourselves and we certainly don't do any "methodology". Just choose the algorithm you want and the crypto block will make it easier to use.
