Publisher Class

Provides the Authenticode X.509v3 digital signature of a code assembly as evidence for policy evaluation. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.Security.Policy
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public sealed class Publisher : EvidenceBase, 
	IIdentityPermissionFactory

The Publisher type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodPublisherInitializes a new instance of the Publisher class with the Authenticode X.509v3 certificate containing the publisher's public key.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyCertificateGets the publisher's Authenticode X.509v3 certificate.
Top

  NameDescription
Public methodCloneCreates a new object that is a copy of the current instance. (Overrides EvidenceBase.Clone().)
Public methodCopyCreates an equivalent copy of the Publisher.
Public methodCreateIdentityPermissionCreates an identity permission that corresponds to the current instance of the Publisher class.
Public methodEqualsCompares the current Publisher to the specified object for equivalence. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Public methodGetHashCodeGets the hash code of the current Certificate. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string representation of the current Publisher. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

The presence of Publisher evidence produces a PublisherIdentityPermission in the grant set. If there is a Demand for PublisherIdentityPermission, the PublisherIdentityPermission that corresponds to the Publisher evidence will be compared with the demanded permission.

Publisher evidence is based on Authenticode X.509v3 signatures.

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.
