[Mono-devel-list] Question on StrongNameIdentityPermission attribute

Short story: StrongNames aren't yet supported on Mono.

Long story:
I've done, but not lately, some work on StrongNames (signing and verifying
assembly). My next step is to find what part of the assembly is hashed as
this appear undocumented in ECMA and Microsoft documentation. I've some
ideas how to find this but didn't have (yet) the time to do so.

On a positive note: StrongName is something that Motus requires on .NET. So
someday I'm sure I'll be back on the issue...

Subject: [Mono-devel-list] Question on StrongNameIdentityPermission

I have question.  The included prototype works as expected on a Windows
VS.net 2003 build.  But when built with mono via the nant build file or
running the vs.net built assemblies in mono, I fail to get the expected

I should get a security exception when running the invalid executable, and
do get one when running MSFT CLR.  The Mono build seems to ignore the
StrongNameIdentityPermission as the nant build does not even sign either exe

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance,
Bill Richardson
