I recently needed to encrypt some data in a Windows Store App and decrypt it on the server in a full .NET Framework application.  The Encryption APIs available in the two environments are different, so I came up with the following class that implements a compatible pair of encryption and decryption functions to enable encrypting in a Store App and Decrypting on the server or vice versa.
