  NameDescription
Public methodCloneCreates a new object that is a copy of the current instance. (Overrides EvidenceBase.Clone().)
Public methodCopyCreates an equivalent copy of the current StrongName.
Public methodCreateIdentityPermissionCreates a StrongNameIdentityPermission that corresponds to the current StrongName.
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified strong name is equal to the current strong name. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeGets the hash code of the current StrongName. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringCreates a string representation of the current StrongName. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

The StrongName class represents evidence of a unique, cryptographically strong name of a code assembly. The strong name consists of a public key, a given name, and a version. The public key corresponds to the publisher's private key which is kept secret, and with which the assembly must be signed in order for the strong name to be valid.

Strong names are typically assigned to assemblies using either AssemblyKeyFileAttribute, AssemblyKeyNameAttribute or AssemblyDelaySignAttribute in conjunction with the SN utility (see Sn.exe (Strong Name Tool)).

StrongNameIdentityPermission uses this class to confirm that calling code is in a particular strong-named code assembly.
