Creates and returns a new instance of the SocketPermission class.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public override IPermission CreatePermission()

Return Value

Type: System.Security.IPermission
An instance of the SocketPermission class that corresponds to the security declaration.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

One or more of the current instance's Access, Host, Transport, or Port properties is null.

The CreatePermission method is called by the security system, not by the application code. The security information described by SocketPermissionAttribute is stored in the metadata of the attribute target, which is the class to which the SocketPermissionAttribute is applied. The system then accesses the information at run-time and calls CreatePermission. The system uses the returned IPermission to enforce the specified security requirements.
