Encrypt connection string in web.config file

This time we have written a generalize function which will encrypt an decrypt connection strings.

Following code snippet will help to encrypt connection string in web.config file.

  protected void encryptConfi(bool bencrypt)
        {
            string webconfigfilepath = "~/";
            Configuration config = WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(webconfigfilepath);
            ConfigurationSection configsec = config.GetSection("connectionStrings");
            if (bencrypt)
            {
                configsec.SectionInformation.ProtectSection("DataProtectionConfigurationProvider");
            }
            else
            {
                configsec.SectionInformation.UnprotectSection();
            }
            config.Save();
        }

Happy Coding!!
