Managing Assembly and Manifest Signing
The Signing page of the Project Designer enables you to use strong-name signing to sign application and deployment manifests, and to sign your assembly. Note that the signing of application and deployment manifests is a process distinct from the signing of an assembly, although both tasks are accomplished on the Signing page.
The following topics apply to Visual C# and Visual Basic projects. For information about signing assemblies in Visual C++ projects, see Strong Name Assemblies (Assembly Signing) (C++/CLI).
