The PasswordDeriveBytes class seems is missing from CryptoRT http://labs.rebex.net/CryptoRT

It seems only the Rfc2898DeriveBytes class is available.

How can i use the PasswordDeriveBytes class? Can i implement it using the Rfc2898DeriveBytes?

we did not add PasswordDeriveBytes class mostly because of it's strange CryptDeriveKey method, and because the class was made obsolete in .NET Framework 2.0 ten years ago. However, if you only need the more-often used PasswordDeriveBytes.GetBytes(int) method, we can add the PasswordDeriveBytes class quite easily - just let us know.
