Keith Brown from Developmentor is one of my favorite authors on the topic of Security.  As I have noted before, he is writing a book on .NET Security and is putting the book online for review (See the Security Resources Section for the link to the book).

He currently has a chapter available on "How to Store Secrets on a machine" available online. [1] Excellent reading as this is one of the most frequently asked questions.  As part of his explanation, he has provided a .NET class that wraps the calls to DPAPI in Win32. Check it out.

Another relevant article is "Safeguard Database Connection Strings and Other Sensitive Settings in Your Code" [2] that appeared in MSDN magazine some time back.
