StrongNameIdentityPermissionAttribute Class

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

For a list of all members of this type, see StrongNameIdentityPermissionAttribute Members.

Thread Safety

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

Remarks

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

The key strings for this attribute can be attained by running secutil.exe. For more information, see Secutil Tool (Secutil.exe).

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.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example of a declarative attribute shows the correct way to request StrongNameIdentityPermission and states that you must have at least this permission to run your code. Code will only execute if signed with a strong name using the private key counterpart of the specified public key. Since Name and Version are not specified, this attribute will match any name and version.
