Security Goals for the .NET Compact Framework

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Future security plans for the .NET Compact Framework may include the following:

  • Code access security.

  • A security policy restricted to managed code on the device. However, if the platform continues to support native code, full platform security cannot be achieved.

  • Custom assembly evidence and field-replaceable security policy.

  • Custom permission types to help secure planned mobile extensions of the .NET Compact Framework.

  • Custom permission types introduced by device manufacturers to help secure platform-specific functionality. These custom permissions could be provided in new namespaces that work with the .NET Compact Framework.
