StrongName Class

StrongName Class

Provides the strong name of a code assembly as evidence for policy evaluation. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public sealed class StrongName : EvidenceBase, 

The StrongName type exposes the following members.

Public methodStrongNameInitializes a new instance of the StrongName class with the strong name public key blob, name, and version.

Public propertyNameGets the simple name of the current StrongName.
Public propertyPublicKeyGets the StrongNamePublicKeyBlob of the current StrongName.
Public propertyVersionGets the Version of the current StrongName.

Public methodCloneCreates a new object that is a copy of the current instance. (Overrides EvidenceBase.Clone().)
Public methodCopyCreates an equivalent copy of the current StrongName.
Public methodCreateIdentityPermissionCreates a StrongNameIdentityPermission that corresponds to the current StrongName.
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified strong name is equal to the current strong name. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Public methodGetHashCodeGets the hash code of the current StrongName. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringCreates a string representation of the current StrongName. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

The StrongName class represents evidence of a unique, cryptographically strong name of a code assembly. The strong name consists of a public key, a given name, and a version. The public key corresponds to the publisher's private key which is kept secret, and with which the assembly must be signed in order for the strong name to be valid.

Strong names are typically assigned to assemblies using either AssemblyKeyFileAttribute, AssemblyKeyNameAttribute or AssemblyDelaySignAttribute in conjunction with the SN utility (see Sn.exe (Strong Name Tool)).

StrongNameIdentityPermission uses this class to confirm that calling code is in a particular strong-named code assembly.
