I'm copying some encryption code in from our desktop solution and we use a "using" block on PasswordDerivedBytes, in MonoTouch I'm getting an error that I can't do this because of the lack of IDisposable.  I looked into the classes in VS 2012 and it looks like your missing IDisposable support on this item:

using System;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
namespace System.Security.Cryptography
	[ComVisible (true)]
	public abstract class DeriveBytes
		// Methods
		public abstract byte[] GetBytes (int cb);

		public abstract void Reset ();

Could you be 6.2.x (stable) instead of 6.3.x (alpha) like mentioned above ?

That behavior is totally normal on 6.2 because we follow the Silverlight-like profile, which was based on NET_2_0 [1]. 

DeriveBytes was not IDisposable until .NET 4.0, e.g. Mono source code here:

if NET_4_0
	public abstract class DeriveBytes : IDisposable {
	public abstract class DeriveBytes {

When you update to 6.3 (or the stable 6.4) based on .NET 4.5 then the type will implement IDisposable, like [2].

Yes, I'm on latest stable, sorry.
