I'm a bit confused as to why we have to set this?  It's not referenced in any other documentation or existing configuration I've seen.  Also according to their configuration on that page linked the default behavior sounds more secure than setting a constant value.  Wouldn't setting a constant key introduce reduced security by making it possible for someone to get their hands on the key versus an always changing key?

Telerik.Web.UI.DialogParametersEncryptionKey—lets you set a static key that RadEditor will use when deserializing its dialog parameters. By default, this key is randomly generated each time the application recycles.

Ash Prasad,


I used your example to clear the problem but since Telerik.AsyncUpload.ConfigurationEncryptionKey was already in the web.config I replaced it with the error was calling as missing.

<add key="Telerik.Web.UI.DialogParametersEncryptionKey" and slightly modified the value = of the Telerik.AsyncUpload.ConfigurationEncryptionKey  (guid)

the same with


<add key="Telerik.Upload.ConfigurationHashKey" value

Cleared cache & restarted application reran analyzer and it cleared the error.

I am not 100% sure on this - but this is needed when running in a web farm scenario. If each web head generate their own keys at startup then it will cause collisions - a key from one web head won't match with other. In such cases one must use the key from web.config, which is shared among all the web heads.

We don't operate in a web farm, they're just stand alone websites on a single IIS server. We're going to have to go through a testing and validation phase to add this setting to ensure it doesn't cause any issues so we can make the validator give us a green check mark.

FYI for those following this DNN has put out SecurityAnalyzer 8.1.1 that will add this key to your web.config automatically if it's missing.
