StrongNameMembershipCondition Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the StrongNameMembershipCondition class with the strong name public key blob, name, and version number that determine membership.

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

public StrongNameMembershipCondition (
	StrongNamePublicKeyBlob blob,
	string name,
	Version version
public StrongNameMembershipCondition (
	StrongNamePublicKeyBlob blob, 
	String name, 
	Version version
public function StrongNameMembershipCondition (
	blob : StrongNamePublicKeyBlob, 
	name : String, 
	version : Version



The strong name public key blob of the software publisher.


The simple name section of the strong name.


The version number of the strong name.

Exception typeCondition


The blob parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The name parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The name parameter is an empty string ("").

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.

The name and version parameters are optional. For example, you can create a StrongNameMembershipCondition that checks for PublicKey and Name (but not Version) by passing a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) into the version parameter. If name is an empty string (""), an ArgumentException is thrown.
