Helps to secure another implementation of XmlResolver by wrapping the XmlResolver object and restricting the resources that the underlying XmlResolver has access to.

For a list of all members of this type, see XmlSecureResolver 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.


XmlSecureResolver wraps around a concrete implementation of XmlResolver, and restricts the resources that the underlying XmlResolver has access to. For instance, XmlSecureResolver has the ability to prohibit cross-domain redirection, which occurs from an embedded URI reference.

When you construct an XmlSecureResolver object, you provide a valid XmlResolver implementation along with a URL, an instance of Evidence, or a System.Security.PermissionSet, which is used by the XmlSecureResolver to determine security. Either a PermissionSet is generated or the existing one is used and PermitOnly is called on it to help secure the underlying XmlResolver.
