Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public sealed class StrongName : IIdentityPermissionFactory

public final class StrongName implements IIdentityPermissionFactory
SerializableAttribute

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 Strong Name Tool (Sn.exe)).

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