Represents the identity of a software publisher. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Gets or sets an Authenticode X.509v3 certificate that represents the identity of the software publisher.
Declares that the calling code can access the resource protected by a permission demand through the code that calls this method, even if callers higher in the stack have not been granted permission to access the resource. Using Assert can create security issues.(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Creates and returns an identical copy of the current permission.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Copy().)
Obsolete.Prevents callers higher in the call stack from using the code that calls this method to access the resource specified by the current instance.(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Reconstructs a permission with a specified state from an XML encoding.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.FromXml(SecurityElement).)
Creates and returns a permission that is the intersection of the current permission and the specified permission.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Intersect(IPermission).)
Determines whether the current permission is a subset of the specified permission.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission).)
Prevents callers higher in the call stack from using the code that calls this method to access all resources except for the resource specified by the current instance.(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Creates and returns a string representation of the current permission object.(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Creates an XML encoding of the permission and its current state.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.ToXml().)
This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Creates a permission that is the union of the current permission and the specified permission.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Union(IPermission).)
Starting with the .NET Framework 4, identity permissions are not used.
In the .NET Framework versions 1.0 and 1.1, identity permissions cannot have an Unrestricted permission state value. Starting with the .NET Framework version 2.0, identity permissions can have any permission state value. This means that in 2.0 and later versions, identity permissions have the same behavior as permissions that implement the IUnrestrictedPermission interface. That is, a demand for an identity always succeeds, regardless of the identity of the assembly, if the assembly has been granted full trust.
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. Starting with 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.
By default, code access security does not check for Publisher evidence. Unless your computer has a custom code group based on the PublisherMembershipCondition class, you can improve performance by bypassing Authenticode signature verification. This is accomplished by configuring the runtime to not provide Publisher evidence for code access security. For more information about how to configure this option and which applications can use it, see the element.
