Welcome to Crypteron, the best encryption and key management solution for developers building backend applications. You’ll be secure and running in minutes.

To get started, here is a quick list

  1. Log into the Crypteron service via https://my.crypteron.com, register your app and copy its AppSecret to your application. .NET Core users can store their Crypteron AppSecret in any configuration provider of their choice (including appsettings.json), read it from there and program the AppSecret by using something like:

    CrypteronConfig.Config.MyCrypteronAccount.AppSecret = "[App Secret Goes Here]";

    .NET Framework users can also setup the AppSecret by code as shown above or use the older app.config or web.config settings approach by using something like

    <section name="crypteronConfig" type="Crypteron.CrypteronConfig, CipherCore" />
    <myCrypteronAccount appSecret="Replace_this_with_app_secret_from_https://my.crypteron.com" />

    If you don’t have an app yet, we have sample apps (see below) where you can try Crypteron in just a few minutes.

  2. Sample applications showing typical usage are on GitHub at https://github.com/crypteron/crypteron-sample-apps. You can also use these to quickly pilot a successful proof-of-concept inside your organization in minutes.

  3. Documentation is at http://www.crypteron.com/docs. There we show the small code changes needed for integration.

  4. For technical, sales or account questions don’t hesitate to email us at support@crypteron.com

NuGet tip: All Crypteron agents have a Nuget dependency on the Crypteron CipherCore package with the same version number as the agent package itself. Sometimes Nuget updates one but not the other. When updating, please check in NuGet that both the Crypteron agent package (e.g. CipherDB) and Crypteron CipherCore package have matching versions.

Thank you!
