The command-line tools in this section help you perform security-related tasks, such as configuring security policy, managing certificates, and digitally signing files. They enable you to test your components and applications before you deploy them.
Enables you to view and configure security policy for the machine policy level, the user policy level, and the enterprise policy level. In the .NET Framework version 4 and later, this tool does not affect code access security (CAS) policy unless the <legacyCasPolicy> element is set to true. For more information, see Security Changes in the .NET Framework 4.
Enables you to change the registry settings for the Software Publishing State keys, which control the behavior of the certificate verification process. This tool is available only with versions 1.0 and 1.1 of the .NET Framework. In later versions, use SignTool.exe (Sign Tool) instead.
Includes tools that help with build and deployment tasks such as generating portable executable (PE) and Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) files, viewing and manipulating the global assembly cache, managing application and deployment manifests, and handling isolated stores and resource files.
Includes graphical and command-line tools that provide information about the internal common language runtime environment, help you find and fix bugs in applications that target the common language runtime, and let you view assembly binds.
