Cryptographic service provider (CSP) could not be found for this algorithm.

I'm running an ASP.NET webapplication on a Windows 2000 Server SP4 machine
with .Net Framework 1.0 installed.

The ASP.Net application uses impersonation (windows domain account). This is
needed for communication between two servers (some ldap stuff).
Furthermore the application uses FormsAuthentication. At some point the
FomrAuthentication.Decrypt method is called. At this point I get the
following error:
Cryptographic service provider (CSP) could not be found for this algorithm.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the
current web request.
Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where
it originated in the code.

Exception Details:
System.Security.Cryptography.CryptographicExceptio n:
Cryptographic service provider (CSP) could not be found for this algorithm.

Source Error:
An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web
request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can
be identified using the exception stack trace below.

Stack Trace:

[CryptographicException: Cryptographic service provider
(CSP) could not be found for this algorithm.]

System.Security.Cryptography.DESCryptoServiceProvi der..ctor() +239
System.Web.Security.FormsAuthentication.Initialize () +242
System.Web.Security.FormsAuthenticationModule.OnEn ter(Object source,
EventArgs eventArgs) +146
System.Web.SyncEventExecutionStep.Execute() +60
System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionS tep step, Boolean&
completedSynchronously) +87


The application runs fine on another Win2K SP4 machine and also on some
other WinXP machines.
I tried to install the Windows 2000 High Encryption Package. But that didn't
solve the problem.
The error doesn't occur when I turn impersonation off. But the application
needs impersonation so this is no solution.

So what to do ?
I searched msdn and the internet but I couldn't find anything that solves
the problem.

Any help is appreciatet.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

thanks for your reply.

It does not seem to be the algorithm.
I did a lot of testing today. It must have something to do with user
permissions.
If I give administrator-priviliges to the aspnet user and to my domain user
(the one I use for impersonation) everything works fine. (I really don't
like that).

I tried all possible combinations of user priviliges (also all the ones
suggested in different newsgroups) but that doesn't solve the problem.
I tried filemon and regmon but I could not find any errors.
If I disable impersonation everything works fine as well.

btw: IIS uses IntegratedWindowsAuthentication and AnonymousAuthentication
but I tried all possible combinations. No success.

Do you have any other suggestions ?

Regards,

Sven-Torben

Can you check if the algorithm used is AES? That would explain your problem. The MS CSP handling AES is not by default installed on Windows 2000 -
although you CAN install it (that's why on some computers it works). It is
installed on Windows XP. If this is, in fact, your problem you can solve it in two ways:
1. Make sure the AES CSP is installed on your target machines
2. or switch to Triple-DES as algorithm.

I doubt this has anything to do with privileges. May be the user profile
need to be loaded.

What do you mean by "the user profile need to be loaded" ?
How can I test this ? And why works everything fine when the ASPNET user has
administrator priviliges ?
