Security Configuration Files

Security configuration files contain information about the code group hierarchy and permission sets associated with a policy level. It is strongly recommended that you use the .NET Framework Configuration tool (Mscorcfg.msc) or Code Access Security Policy tool (Caspol.exe) to modify security policy to ensure that policy changes do not corrupt the security configuration files.

The following table shows the locations of the security configuration files.
