public static PermissionSet ResolvePolicy(

	PermissionSet reqdPset,
	PermissionSet optPset,
	PermissionSet denyPset,
	out PermissionSet denied
)

Parameters

evidence
Type: System.Security.Policy.Evidence

The evidence set used to evaluate policy.

reqdPset
Type: System.Security.PermissionSet

The required permissions the code needs to run.

optPset
Type: System.Security.PermissionSet

The optional permissions that will be used if granted, but aren't required for the code to run.

denyPset
Type: System.Security.PermissionSet

The denied permissions that must never be granted to the code even if policy otherwise permits it.

denied
Type: System.Security.PermissionSet

An output parameter that contains the set of permissions not granted.

Return Value

Type: System.Security.PermissionSet
The set of permissions that would be granted by the security system.

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

This method uses code access security (CAS) policy, which is obsolete in the .NET Framework 4. To enable CAS policy for compatibility with earlier versions of the .NET Framework, use the <legacyCasPolicy> element.<NetFx40_LegacySecurityPolicy> Element.

PolicyException

Policy fails to grant the minimum required permissions specified by the reqdPset parameter.

This method invokes the security policy engine, providing it with evidence of the calling code's identity and the set of permissions the code requests. The result is determined by the security policy. This method returns the set of permissions that would be granted by the security system, and returns the set of permissions that would be denied as an output parameter. The effective granted permissions are those in the granted set that are not in the denied set.
