In short: today this is not possible with Mono.

NET provides this functionality as part of its Code Access Security
Framework (CAS).   But Mono does not implement or support CAS.

There is a new model under development, much simpler, but that does not
offer all the flexibility of CAS and is intended to be used with
Silverlight.    We are working on this framework, and will be ready to
use when Silverlight 2.0 is ready to go out.
