DataProtectionPermissionAttribute Class


Allows security actions for DataProtectionPermission to be applied to code using declarative security. This class cannot be inherited.

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


[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly | AttributeTargets.Class | AttributeTargets.Struct | AttributeTargets.Constructor | AttributeTargets.Method, 
	AllowMultiple = true, Inherited = false)]
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort = true)]
public sealed class DataProtectionPermissionAttribute : CodeAccessSecurityAttribute


Initializes a new instance of the DataProtectionPermissionAttribute class with the specified SecurityAction.


Gets or sets a security action.(Inherited from SecurityAttribute.)


Gets or sets the data protection permissions.


Gets or sets a value indicating whether data can be encrypted using the ProtectedData class.


Gets or sets a value indicating whether memory can be encrypted using the ProtectedMemory class.


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


Gets or sets a value indicating whether data can be unencrypted using the ProtectedData class.


Gets or sets a value indicating whether memory can be unencrypted using the ProtectedMemory class.


Gets or sets a value indicating whether full (unrestricted) permission to the resource protected by the attribute is declared.(Inherited from SecurityAttribute.)


Creates and returns a new DataProtectionPermission.(Overrides SecurityAttribute.CreatePermission().)


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.)

The scope of the declaration that is allowed depends on the SecurityAction value that is used.

The security information declared by a security attribute is stored in the metadata of the attribute target and is accessed by the system at run time. DataProtectionPermissionAttribute is used only for declarative security. For imperative security, use the DataProtectionPermission class.

The following code example shows the use of the DataProtectionPermissionAttribute. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataProtectionPermissionclass.
