I just wanted to explain that Click Once is not depending on CAS. It is a
deployment infrastructure that can be made safer with CAS.

It has to be the user through a message box for example or a configuration
file that describes some rules on full trust.

Click one is something like an installer it can be implemented without CAS.
But it's better to use security classes in the code to take advantage of CAS
when it will be available.
