<SerializableAttribute> _
<AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly Or AttributeTargets.Class Or AttributeTargets.Struct Or AttributeTargets.Constructor Or AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple := True,  _
	Inherited := False)> _
<ComVisibleAttribute(True)> _
Public MustInherit Class SecurityAttribute _

  Name Description
Protected method SecurityAttribute Initializes a new instance of SecurityAttribute with the specified SecurityAction.
Top
  Name Description
Public property Action Gets or sets a security action.
Public property TypeId When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public property Unrestricted Gets or sets a value indicating whether full (unrestricted) permission to the resource protected by the attribute is declared.
Top
  Name Description
Public method CreatePermission When overridden in a derived class, creates a permission object that can then be serialized into binary form and persistently stored along with the SecurityAction in an assembly's metadata.
Public method Equals Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCode Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IsDefaultAttribute When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Match When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Top
  Name Description
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _Attribute.GetIDsOfNames Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _Attribute.GetTypeInfo Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _Attribute.Invoke Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
