Security Policy Model

Security Policy Model

The .NET Framework security policy model comprises the following elements:

Each security policy level has its own hierarchy of code groups that provides a framework for establishing and configuring security policy. Code groups map evidence to a set of allowed permissions. Often, code groups are associated with a named permission set that specifies the allowable permissions for code in that group. The runtime uses evidence provided by a trusted host or by the loader to determine which code groups the code belongs to and, therefore, which permissions the code is granted.
