Understanding named permission sets

A named permission set is a set of permissions that administrators or developers can associate with a code group. A named permission set consists of at least one permission and a name and description for that particular permission set. Administrators can use named permission sets to establish or modify the security policy for code groups, much like Windows NT groups are used to manage groups of users. You can associate more than one code group with the same named permission set.

Table 37-2 describes the built-in named permission sets provided by the common language runtime.
