          I am studying for MCTS - 70-536 , I want more details about caspol utility, its command line options. I have gone through the Link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cb6t8dtz%28VS.80%29.aspx and the MCTS - 70-536 Self Paced Training Kit , 2nd Edition, but I could not find its detailed command line options.

Issue with Code Access Security Policy - deploying a third party dll to bin


Okay, i think most of you guys out there use wspbuilder to build the wsp solutions and to deploy it. So here is my problem.

I'm working on a SharePoint solution which makes use of a third party dll (Telerik for Asp.Net Ajax - Telerik.Web.UI.dll) for rich experience. Since Telerik dll is a common assembly i have to deploy it to the bin folder of the webapplication instead of GAC. So here comes the problem.

WSPBuilder automatically deploys the dll to gac if the dll presents in the GAC folder. To deploy the telerik dll in bin i created the folder 80\bin and copied the dll there. I tried to build the wsp again and then went through the manifest.xml created. Great. The deployment target for the dll changed to WebApplication and wspbuilder was smart to create the cas policy itself.

Are You in the Know?: Find Out What's New with Code Access Security in the .NET Framework 2.0


Unlike role-based security measures, code access security is not based on user identity. Instead, it is based on the identity of the code that is running, including information such as where the code came from. Here Mike Downen discusses the role of code access security (CAS) in .NET and outlines some key new features and changes in CAS for the .NET Framework 2.0.

Return of the Rich Client: Code Access Security and Distribution Features in .NET Enhance Client-Sid


Rich clients employ many of the features and conveniences of the operating system they run on, and the list of these features has been growing since the dawn of the PC. But as apps have migrated to the Web, the trend towards increasing client-side functionality has ground to a virtual halt. There are several reasons for this; chief among them are security and deployment problems. But that's all about to change. With the .NET Framework, you can participate in building the distributable rich client of the future. In this article, the author enumerates the pertinent features of .NET that will allow you to build safe, easily deployable controls. The features discussed include managed code, code access security, versioning control, Windows Forms classes, and isolation.

Security in .NET: Enforce Code Access Rights with the Common Language Runtime


Component-based software is vulnerable to attack. Large numbers of DLLs that are not tightly controlled are at the heart of the problem. Code access security in the Common Language Runtime of the Microsoft .NET Framework addresses this common security hole. In this model, the CLR acts as the traffic cop to assemblies, keeping track of where they came from and what security restraints should be placed on them. Another way the .NET Framework addresses security is by providing preexisting classes which have built-in security. These are the classes that are invoked in .NET when performing risky operations such as reading and writing files, displaying dialog boxes, and so on. Of course, if a component calls unmanaged code, it can bypass code access security measures. This article covers these and other security issues.

Disable Code Access Security


I m having an application where I loads dlls dnamically and from that loaded dll is use to read some machine settings,files etc. I want full access for my application so I want to disable CAS setting for my application.

I have tried "SecurityManager.SecurityEnabled =  false" but I m failing to set this property from my application.

I have tried caspol -security off from VS command prompt but from my code I always gets TRUE for SecurityManager.SecurityEnabled.

I m using CLR v2.0

Please let me know how I can disable CAS from my application.



Cannot Access Security Tab in ASP.NET Web Site Administration Tool


As the title suggests, I am having difficulties accessing the security tab. The error I keep receiving is "Unable to connect to SQL server database." I try to choose a data store and the only option I am given is AspNetSqlProvider. When I click "Test," it tells me to launch aspnet_regsql, configure the database, then come back and try it again. After configuring it to use AspNetSqlProvider, I still get the same persistent error.

I am using Visual Studio Team System 2008 and SQL Server 2005. Any help is appreciated.

Security: Manipulate Privileges in Managed Code Reliably, Securely, and Efficiently


When the author was faced with implementing support for changing a security descriptor on an object, he noticed there was not support for that operation in .NET. So he devised two solutions to the problem: the first, simpler one, is tailored to the .NET Framework 1.1 and can be used today. The second solution incorporates several advanced features available only in the .NET Framework 2.0. Both are presented here.

Security Briefs: Access Control List Editing in .NET


Access control lists (ACLs) can be complex beasts, and user interfaces for editing them are incredibly tricky to implement properly. That's why I was really excited when Windows® 2000 shipped with a programmable ACL editor, shown in Figure 1.

.NET Code Tuning: Make Your Apps Fly with the New Enterprise Performance Tool


Because the common language runtime (CLR) is a black box, it's pretty hard to divine what's going on when you want to track down performance problems. Microsoft will be delivering a brand new profiler, the Enterprise Performance Tool (EPT), as part of Visual Studio 2005 Team Developer Edition that's ideal for use on a production system because it offers some very lightweight means of collecting performance data. Here John Robbins takes you on a tour.
