PublisherIdentityPermissionAttribute Class


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

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


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


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


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


Gets or sets a certification file containing an Authenticode X.509v3 certificate.


Gets or sets a signed file from which to extract an Authenticode X.509v3 certificate.


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


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


Gets or sets an Authenticode X.509v3 certificate that identifies the publisher of the calling code.


Creates and returns a new instance of PublisherIdentityPermission.(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 that is used.

The properties CertFile, SignedFile, and X509Certificate are mutually exclusive.

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. Security attributes are used only for declarative security. For imperative security, use the corresponding permission class.


Starting with the .NET Framework 4, identity permissions are not used.

   In the .NET Framework versions 1.0 and 1.1, identity permissions cannot have an Unrestricted permission state value. Starting with the .NET Framework version 2.0, identity permissions can have any permission state value. This means that in 2.0 and later versions, identity permissions have the same behavior as permissions that implement the IUnrestrictedPermission interface.


By default, code access security does not check for Publisher evidence. Unless your computer has a custom code group based on the PublisherMembershipCondition class, you can improve performance by bypassing Authenticode signature verification. This is accomplished by configuring the runtime to not provide Publisher evidence for code access security. For more information about how to configure this option and which applications can use it, see the element.
