Administration Tools

The recommended way to configure security policy is to use the .NET Framework Configuration tool (Mscorcfg.msc). This tool provides wizards to help you adjust your user, machine, and enterprise security settings. The following table describes these wizards.

Wizard Description
Trust an application Use this wizard to identify an application by publisher or strong name information and increase the application's level of trust.
Adjust security settings Use this wizard to increase or decrease permissions to assemblies originating from one of the following zones: My Computer, Local Intranet, Internet, Trusted Sites, and Untrusted Sites.
Create a deployment package Use this wizard to create a Windows Installer package to deploy security policy across an enterprise.

For more information on using the wizards, see the .NET Framework Configuration tool (Mscorcfg.msc).

If the wizards do not provide the functionality you require to administer security policy, you can edit the permission sets and code groups directly by using either the .NET Framework Configuration toolor the Code Access Security Policy tool (Caspol.exe). Caspol.exe is a command-line tool provided mainly for scripting security administration. For information on performing specific tasks using these tools see Security Policy Configuration.
