Re: TortoiseSVN & CryptProtectData

A search for "FIPS CryptProtectData" returns the following blog post
(among others, and after some digging), which seems relevant:
http://code.dblock.org/ShowPost.aspx?id=63
That post indicates that CryptProtectData uses the FIPS 140-1 compliant
CSP with either 3DES (in Windows 2000) or AES (in later versions).

Note: in this case, I also tried MSDN (e.g.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/aa380261.aspx), but there wasn't much
useful information on there, which is unusual.
