Cryptographic hash algorithms produce fixed-length sequences based on input of arbitrary length. A given input always produces the same output, called a hash code. Using these algorithms, you can compute and validate hash codes to ensure that code running on your machine has not been tampered with or otherwise changed. ASP.NET provides a software mechanism for validating hash code fingerprints for every page requested by a client. In this article, the author shows how to use hash codes with ASP.NET applications to detect tampering and prevent malicious code from running when tampering is detected.

I would like to develop a mobile application such as the one you find in iPhones but I don't know from where to start!!? I'm not looking for something complicated, just an a static application of an eBook that users can read an flip the pages, I don't think that you can do such animation easily in ASP.net so does anyone knows what tool that I can use to develop such application?
Hi Everyone, I need to detect the size of the user's screen for mobile devices (especially the BlackBerry). I've read a lot of pages that seem to refer me to the Request.Browser object, but I'm finding that this object doesn't have the correct values. For example, I have a BlackBerry and when I use the Request.Browser to get the screen size, it tells me it is 640x480. Well, I know it's not that big since an image of 300px wide just barely fits. Also, when I run on my desktop browser, it also says my screen is 640x480. I can assure you, it is not 640x480! ha!
