what is keyAlgorithmStorageProvider

Feb 9, 2010 at 11:09 AM

is the MS enterprise library related property "keyAlgorithmStorageProvider" obsolete now? Because I have a project in framework 1.1 which includes

<keyAlgorithmStorageProvider xsi:nil="true" />

in web.config file. when I upgraded that project to framework version 2.0, I get the error, xsi:nil is not a valid attribute for it, while building the project. so i removed it and everything is fine.

I am using the same old configuration file and everything is working fine. That means the 'keyAlgorithmStorageProvider' tag is not necessary now.
