What is strong naming (signing) a WebPart assembly file mean?

  Shared By: Tarang Nayak    Date: Mar 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 977


Signing an assembly with a strong name (a.k.a strong naming) uses a cryptographic key pair that gives a unique identity to a component that is being built. This identity can then be referred throughout the rest of the environment. In order to install assemblies into the GAC, they must be strongly named. After signing, the binary will have a public key token identifier which can be use to register the component in various other places on the server.
