HOW TO: Evaluate the Permissions That Are Granted to an Assembly

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
This step-by-step article describes how to evaluate the permissions that are granted to a .NET Framework assembly. The .NET Framework uses a hierarchical model to assign security policies to managed assemblies. You can define configurations at the Enterprise, Machine, or User level. Additionally, you can assign trust to assemblies based on their zone or on the developer who created the assembly. You can manually override these rules on a per-assembly basis. The combination of all these factors determines the resources that are available to an assembly. This article describes the process of evaluating the permissions granted to an assembly.

  3. Right-click Runtime Security Policy, and then click Evaluate Assembly. The Evaluate An Assembly wizard appears.
  4. On the What Would You Like To Evaluate page, click Browse, select the assembly, and then click Open. The Evaluate An Assembly wizard reappears.
  5. Verify that the View Permissions Granted To An Assembly option is selected, and then click Next.
  6. The List Of Permissions Granted page lists the specific privileges that are assigned to the assembly. When Unrestricted appears, that assembly has Full trust. Click Finish to close the wizard and return to the .NET Framework Configuration tool.
