{

}
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
ProtectSection("connectionStrings", "DataProtectionConfigurationProvider");

}

private void ProtectSection(string strSectionName, string provider)
{
Configuration config = WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(Request.ApplicationPath);

ConfigurationSection section = config.GetSection(strSectionName);

if (section != null && !section.SectionInformation.IsProtected)
{
section.SectionInformation.ProtectSection(provider);
config.Save();
}

}

private void UnProtectSection(string strSectionName)
{
Configuration config = WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(Request.ApplicationPath);

ConfigurationSection section = config.GetSection(strSectionName);

if (section != null && section.SectionInformation.IsProtected)
{
