Exception Condition

This method uses code access security (CAS) policy, which is obsolete in the .NET Framework 4. To enable CAS policy for compatibility with earlier versions of the .NET Framework, use the <legacyCasPolicy> element.

This method invokes the security policy engine and provides it with evidence of the calling code's identity. The result is determined by the system security policy exclusive of any AppDomain policy.
