Hi Shamil:

Thanks for posting.

To my understanding AES is one of the two or is it 3(?), OSS encryption ciphers which has not be cracked or are liable to be...which make it a very good choice for business use or any privacy needs for that matter.

 Hi Paul --

For encryption in a VB.NET program you can use .NET's  System.Security.Cryptography

Have a look at the following samples:

" Cryptography in .NET : Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) "

" .NET Encryption Simplified"
