Strong Naming (Unmanaged API Reference)
The strong naming API enables a client to administer strong name signing for assemblies.
Signing an assembly with a strong name adds a public key encryption to the file containing the assembly manifest. Strong name signing helps verify name uniqueness, prevents name spoofing, and provides callers with a unique identity when a reference is resolved. However, no level of trust is associated with a strong name.
