Defines the identity permission for files originating in the global assembly cache. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Declares that the calling code can access the resource protected by a permission demand through the code that calls this method, even if callers higher in the stack have not been granted permission to access the resource. Using Assert can create security issues.(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Creates and returns an identical copy of the current permission.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Copy().)
Obsolete.Prevents callers higher in the call stack from using the code that calls this method to access the resource specified by the current instance.(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Creates a permission from an XML encoding.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.FromXml(SecurityElement).)
Creates and returns a permission that is the intersection of the current permission and the specified permission.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Intersect(IPermission).)
Indicates whether the current permission is a subset of the specified permission.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission).)
Prevents callers higher in the call stack from using the code that calls this method to access all resources except for the resource specified by the current instance.(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Creates and returns a string representation of the current permission object.(Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Creates an XML encoding of the permission and its current state.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.ToXml().)
Creates and returns a permission that is the union of the current permission and the specified permission.(Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Union(IPermission).)
Files are either in the global assembly cache, or they are not. There are no variations to the permission granted, so allobjects are equal.
Starting with the .NET Framework 4, identity permissions are not used.
In the .NET Framework versions 1.0 and 1.1, demands on the identity permissions are effective even when the calling assembly is fully trusted. That is, although the calling assembly has full trust, a demand for an identity permission fails if the assembly does not meet the demanded criteria. Starting with the .NET Framework version 2.0, demands for identity permissions are ineffective if the calling assembly has full trust. This assures consistency for all permissions, eliminating the treatment of identity permissions as a special case.
