Today’s libraries do complicated things while providing easy interfaces. We’ll look into crypto version of this nice fashion, and see how serious crypto can be accomplished easily. Thanks to .Net (Core), all these processes will be inter-operable and cross-platform 😎

AES, being short for Advanced Encryption Standard, is actually a crypto method named Rijndael. It was selected by NIST, among other submitted proposals, to be “the AES” at 2001. It’s a symmetric-key algorithm, meaning the same key is used for both encrypting and decrypting the data.

AES can be run in many modes, we’ll be looking at GCM, Galois/Counter Mode. This article will not dive into details, descriptions will be kept simple. But for curious ones, Wikipedia has very good pages for AES, its modes of operations and GCM. …
