The name for the new named permission set.
Type: System.Security.Permissions.PermissionState
One of the PermissionState values.


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

A named permission set in an unrestricted state effectively contains all permissions that implement the IUnrestrictedPermission interface. The named permission set will contain all built-in permissions as well as all custom permissions. All permissions will have an Unrestricted PermissionState. Permissions that do not implement IUnrestrictedPermission, such as identity permissions, will be empty instances.
