RSA CryptoAPI storage bin problem(?)

I've finally got my client/server secure soap process working and I've
just noticed that under the servers
[base]\NetworkService \App[..]Data\MS\Crypto\ RSA folder there are some
100+ paired sets of RSA keys.

I don't setup RSACryptoServic eProvider using CspParameters and I didn't
give the RSA initiator any paramters when I setup the class yet, each
implementation of the RSA class, as a web service, is creating a
cryptoAPI storage bin for the RSA public/private key. There's literally
100's of them in there from testing.

Was there a change with beta 2 or .net 1.1 where creating an RSA key
automatically stores the keys in the (in this case) networkservice
crypto storage bin or do you have to specifically tell the RSA class not
to store the generated keys?

The local command line client "caller" test program creates two
RSACryptoServic eProvider's yet it doesn't store the public keys anywhere
on the local machine, this seem's to happen just to the web service.

This is being done from vs 2003 to a win 2k3 machine running .net 1.1.

Thanks for any help.

I forgot to mention that I also set PersistKeyInCsp to false when I
create the RSACryptoServic eProvider class.

Hey Group, After a long week end I am back again. Its nice and refreshing after a short vacation so lets get started with .NET once again. Today we will discuss about Isolated Storage.

Hi i have a question regarding the CryptoAPI. I can seemingly call CryptAcquireContext, and if I pass any random string as the key container name and NULL as the provider name, with CRYPT_NEWKEYSET as the last parameter, then the rest of the crypt functions seem to work. But I came across an instance when I stopped debugging the program, before I had called CryptReleaseContext, and when I ran the program again, I got FALSE returned, and...

This is a very weird problem, when I boot my IIS server I get a CryptoAPI cryptographic service provider (CSP) for this implementation could not be acquired exception. However, once I access my site within the server, the exception goes away. My ASP page only displays the logon user (only 2 lines of code). I don't understand this behavior at all.

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
