In the Mono roadmap there's some mention of CAS:

"A missing component of Mono is the Code Access Security (CAS). This
functionality is not needed in today's Mono as currently Mono is being used
to run fully trusted applications, and we are not using it on embedded
scenarios where assemblies would have different trust levels. 

This is an important component, but requires three major pieces of work: 

- Runtime support for implementing the security demands. 
- A guidelines document outlining what and where must have security demands
in place. 
- A full audit of our class libraries: method by method 
All of these are major pieces of work, and we currently have no plans to
implement any of those. A volunteer effort might be able to help with the
runtime requirements and the document, but until those are done, we are
unlikely to start doing any work on the actual class library audit and

Hope this helps,
-- Rob.
