SiteIdentityPermissionAttribute Class

Allows security actions for SiteIdentityPermission to be applied to code using declarative security. This class cannot be inherited.

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

[SerializableAttribute] 
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct|AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=true, Inherited=false)] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public sealed class SiteIdentityPermissionAttribute : CodeAccessSecurityAttribute
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct|AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=true, Inherited=false) */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public final class SiteIdentityPermissionAttribute extends CodeAccessSecurityAttribute
SerializableAttribute 
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct|AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=true, Inherited=false) 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public final class SiteIdentityPermissionAttribute extends CodeAccessSecurityAttribute
Not applicable.

Site identity is only defined for code from URLs with the protocols of HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP. A site is the string between the "//" after the protocol of a URL and the following "/", if present, for example, www.fourthcoffee.com in the URL http://www.fourthcoffee.com/process/grind.htm. This excludes port numbers. If a given URL is http://www.fourthcoffee.com:8000/, the site is www.fourthcoffee.com, not www.fourthcoffee.com:8000.

Sites can be matched exactly, or by a wildcard ("*") prefix at the dot delimiter. For example, the site name string *.fourthcoffee.com matches fourthcoffee.com as well as www.fourthcoffee.com. Without a wildcard, the site name must be a precise match. The site name string * will match any site, but will not match code that has no site evidence.

NoteImportant:

In the .NET Framework versions 1.0 and 1.1, demands on the identity permissions are effective even when the calling assembly is fully trusted. That is, although the calling assembly has full trust, a demand for an identity permission fails if the assembly does not meet the demanded criteria. In the .NET Framework version 2.0, demands for identity permissions are ineffective if the calling assembly has full trust. This assures consistency for all permissions, eliminating the treatment of identity permissions as a special case.

The scope of the declaration that is allowed depends on the SecurityAction that is used.

The security information declared by a security attribute is stored in the metadata of the attribute target and is accessed by the system at run time. Security attributes are used only for declarative security. For imperative security, use the corresponding permission class.

The following example of a declarative attribute shows the correct way to request SiteIdentityPermission and states that you must have at least this permission to run your code. Code will only execute if it is run from the Web site example.microsoft.com.

[assembly:SiteIdentityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.RequestMinimum,
Site="example.microsoft.com")]
//In C#, you must specify that you are using the assembly scope when
// making a request.

/** @assembly SiteIdentityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.RequestMinimum,
    Site = "example.microsoft.com")
 */
// In VJ#, you must specify that you are using the assembly scope when
// making a request.

The following example shows how to demand that the calling code has SiteIdentityPermission at link time. Code will only execute if it is run from the Web site example.microsoft.com.

[SiteIdentityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Demand,
Site="example.microsoft.com")]

/** @attribute SiteIdentityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Demand, 
    Site = "example.microsoft.com")
 */
