You can improve the security of your Windows Store app using the authentication and cryptography capabilities provided by the Windows Runtime. You can use the different authentication APIs to verify the identity of a user as well as verify user consent for purchases or other actions. You can use the cryptography APIs to secure data and resources and verify trust relationships through encryption and digital signatures. For more information, see Securing apps.
Apps can also work with user contacts and appointments by using the Windows.ApplicationModel.Contacts, Windows.ApplicationModel.Contacts.Provider, Windows.ApplicationModel.Appointments, Windows.ApplicationModel.Appointments.AppointmentsProvider, and Windows.ApplicationModel.Activation namespaces. When working with contacts and appointments, apps can choose to get contact and appointment info from other apps, such as Live, or to provide contacts and appointments to other apps. For more info, see Managing user contacts and appointments.
