Security in the .NET Framework

The common language runtime and the .NET Framework provide many useful classes and services that enable developers to easily write security code. These classes and services also enable system administrators to customize the access that code has to protected resources. In addition, the runtime and the .NET Framework provide useful classes and services that facilitate the use of cryptography and role-based security.
