Core OS Security (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)
Use the following best practices to enhance the security and reliability of the kernel:
Do not try to hide unencrypted information in ROM because it can be read by everyone.
Do not embed encryption keys in your applications and then save the encrypted files to the file system. Always use some form of encryption, such as the Protected Store API.
