Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringCreates and returns a string representation of the current StrongNameMembershipCondition. (Overrides Object.ToString().)
Public methodToXml()Creates an XML encoding of the security object and its current state.
Public methodToXml(PolicyLevel)Creates an XML encoding of the security object and its current state with the specified PolicyLevel.

Strong names are well suited to specifying code assemblies to which you give a rich set of powerful permissions. Since strong names are cryptographically verified, attackers cannot impersonate rightful assemblies and use their permissions.
