SecurityManager.GetZoneAndOrigin Method

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Gets the granted zone identity and URL identity permission sets for the current assembly.

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

public static void GetZoneAndOrigin(
	out ArrayList zone,
	out ArrayList origin


Type: System.Collections.ArrayList

An output parameter that contains an ArrayList of granted Zone objects.

Type: System.Collections.ArrayList

An output parameter that contains an ArrayList of granted UrlIdentityPermission objects.


The request for StrongNameIdentityPermission failed.

The recommended alternative to this method is to use the URL and Zone evidence for the executing assembly to call ResolvePolicy for each evidence type. The permission sets returned from the ResolvePolicy calls identify the permissions granted to the executing assembly based on its zone and URL of origin.


This member makes a link demand for the ECMA public key, which is not a valid cryptographic key but a pseudo key. Within the .NET Framework the link demand for the ECMA pseudo key is automatically converted to a link demand for the Microsoft public key. The security exception is based on the Microsoft public key, not the ECMA pseudo key.
