Yes security attributes are encoded differently than "normal" attributes. This
is why you see .permissionset instead of .custom in the IL.

The real problem is that your code *would* works only if CAS was enabled - and
Mono doesn't support it right now.

There is some (rather old) *experimental* CAS code in the runtime[1] but the
feature is not ready for production (no part of Mono have been completely
audited) and most (of the required) security attributes are missing from the
class library.

[1] you can try "mono --security=cas yourapp.exe" to see if it works as you
expect (it could ;-)

Marking as duplicate of #313506 since this is not a compiler related issue.
