Allows security actions for DataProtectionPermission to be applied to code using declarative security. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: System.Security (in System.Security.dll)
[SerializableAttribute] [AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct|AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple = true, Inherited = false)] [HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort = true)] public sealed class DataProtectionPermissionAttribute : CodeAccessSecurityAttribute
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Action||Gets or sets a security action. (Inherited from SecurityAttribute.)|
|Flags||Gets or sets the data protection permissions.|
|ProtectData||Gets or sets a value indicating whether data can be encrypted using the ProtectedData class.|
|ProtectMemory||Gets or sets a value indicating whether memory can be encrypted using the ProtectedMemory class.|
|TypeId||When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|UnprotectData||Gets or sets a value indicating whether data can be unencrypted using the ProtectedData class.|
|UnprotectMemory||Gets or sets a value indicating whether memory can be unencrypted using the ProtectedMemory class.|
|Unrestricted||Gets or sets a value indicating whether full (unrestricted) permission to the resource protected by the attribute is declared. (Inherited from SecurityAttribute.)|
|CreatePermission||Creates and returns a new DataProtectionPermission. (Overrides SecurityAttribute.CreatePermission().)|
|Equals||Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|IsDefaultAttribute||When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Match||When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames||Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.GetTypeInfo||Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount||Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.Invoke||Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
The scope of the declaration that is allowed depends on the SecurityAction value that is used.
The security information declared by a security attribute is stored in the metadata of the attribute target and is accessed by the system at run time. is used only for declarative security. For imperative security, use the DataProtectionPermission class.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
