Generate truly random cryptographic keys using a random number generator in .NET

The well-known System.Random class lets us generate random numbers quickly. However, the values provided by System.Random are not truly random. Instead, they are pseudo-random. The return values should only be used in case true randomness is not that important, such as in the classic number-guessing game. In case you need a random value to be used in cryptography such as a cryptographic key in symmetric and asymmetric encryption then System.Random is not an acceptable option.
