public sealed class PublisherMembershipCondition : IMembershipCondition, 
	ISecurityEncodable, ISecurityPolicyEncodable

A code assembly satisfies a publisher membership condition if that code is signed by the specified software publisher.

By default, code access security (CAS) 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 CAS. For more information about how to configure this option and which applications can use it, see the <generatePublisherEvidence> element.
