C# .NET Securities

Hi Friends, I came out with the C# program to illustrate the C# .NET securities. It prints the current default Permission Set and description for each security label, Evidence that is passed in the application as a security, and at last we will see the example of role based security example. Your questions are most welcomed for anything related to .NET securities. -Jack
