[Mono-devel-list] [PATCH] Strongname signature verification

Hello all,

Currently most assemblies in Mono are only delay-signed (i.e. they aren't
signed but contain the public key). While this is "enough" to get a fully
qualified name (for GACing) this isn't the "real thing".

The attached path add signature verification for assemblies outside the GAC.
Assemblies inside the GAC aren't verified at runtime (performance gain) but
they are (or in this case will be verified) at installation time by
gacutil.exe. Note that this is exactly what the MS runtime already do on

Comments welcome ;-)
