SecurityRulesAttribute Class

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Indicates the set of security rules the common language runtime should enforce for an assembly.

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


[<AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly, AllowMultiple = false)>]
type SecurityRulesAttribute = 
        inherit Attribute


Initializes a new instance of the SecurityRulesAttribute class using the specified rule set value.


Gets the rule set to be applied.


Determines whether fully trusted transparent code should skip Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) verification.


When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)


When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

This class indicates which set of security rules the common language runtime should enforce for an assembly. For example, an assembly that is marked with [SecurityRules(SecurityRuleSet.Level1)] uses the .NET Framework version 2.0 transparency rules, where public security-critical types and members are treated as security-safe-critical outside the assembly. This requires security-critical types and members to perform a link demand for full trust to enforce security-critical behavior when they are accessed by external callers. Typically, level 1 rules should be used only for compatibility, such as for version 2.0 assemblies. For more information about level 1 behavior, see Security-Transparent Code, Level 1. For information about level 2 behavior, see Security-Transparent Code, Level 2.

Any public static ( Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
