Description Chris Hardy [MSFT] 2013-06-03 10:12:02 UTC
Here's a sample project that runs great on Xamarin.Android 4.7.4 but then crashes with the following stack trace on 4.7.5 & 4.7.7.

We need source for the Parse.Android.dll assembly, otherwise we can't easily narrow down where the big lies, in Parse.Android.dll or in mscorlib.dll.
Comment 2 Jonathan Pryor 2013-06-04 17:49:00 UTC
The actual problem is due to Mono.Security.dll.

The problematic commit is: https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/0bf408eec06e752b21885fe9d1890d35f036805c

I imagine that Aes.Create() is returning null.
