PublisherMembershipCondition Class

Determines whether an assembly belongs to a code group by testing its software publisher's Authenticode X.509v3 certificate. This class cannot be inherited.

System.Object
  System.Security.Policy.PublisherMembershipCondition

Namespace:  System.Security.Policy
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[<Sealed>]
[<SerializableAttribute>]
[<ComVisibleAttribute(true)>]
type PublisherMembershipCondition =  
    class 
        interface IMembershipCondition 
        interface ISecurityEncodable 
        interface ISecurityPolicyEncodable 
    end

The PublisherMembershipCondition type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodPublisherMembershipConditionInitializes a new instance of the PublisherMembershipCondition class with the Authenticode X.509v3 certificate that determines membership.
Top
  NameDescription
Public propertyCertificateGets or sets the Authenticode X.509v3 certificate for which the membership condition tests.
Top
  NameDescription
Public methodCheckDetermines whether the specified evidence satisfies the membership condition.
Public methodCopyCreates an equivalent copy of the membership condition.
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the publisher certificate from the specified object is equivalent to the publisher certificate contained in the current PublisherMembershipCondition. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Public methodFromXml(SecurityElement)Reconstructs a security object with a specified state from an XML encoding.
Public methodFromXml(SecurityElement, PolicyLevel)Reconstructs a security object with a specified state from an XML encoding.
Public methodGetHashCodeGets the hash code for the current membership condition. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringCreates and returns a string representation of the PublisherMembershipCondition. (Overrides Object.ToString().)
Public methodToXml()Creates an XML encoding of the security object and its current state.
Public methodToXml(PolicyLevel)Creates an XML encoding of the security object and its current state with the specified PolicyLevel.

A code assembly satisfies a publisher membership condition if that code is signed by the specified software publisher.

By default, code access security (CAS) does not check for Publisher evidence. Unless your computer has a custom code group based on the PublisherMembershipCondition class, you can improve performance by bypassing Authenticode signature verification. This is accomplished by configuring the runtime to not provide Publisher evidence for CAS. For more information about how to configure this option and which applications can use it, see the <generatePublisherEvidence> element.
