AssemblyName.SetPublicKeyToken Method

Sets the public key token, which is the last 8 bytes of the SHA-1 hash of the public key under which the application or assembly is signed.

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

member SetPublicKeyToken : 
        publicKeyToken:byte[] -> unit

Parameters

publicKeyToken
Type: System.Byte[]

A byte array containing the public key token of the assembly.

When you set the public key by calling the SetPublicKey method, you must also use the SetPublicKeyToken method to provide a public key token. Otherwise, a SecurityException is thrown when the GetPublicKey method is called.

The following example emits a dynamic assembly and saves it to the current directory. When the assembly is created, the SetPublicKeyToken method is used to set the assembly's public key token. The GetPublicKeyToken method is then used to retrieve the public key token, which is displayed to the console.
