PrincipalPermission.Demand Method


Determines at run time whether the current principal matches the principal specified by the current permission.

 virtual void Demand();
public void Demand ();
abstract member Demand : unit -> unit
override this.Demand : unit -> unit
Public Sub Demand ()



The current principal does not pass the security check for the principal specified by the current permission.


The current IPrincipal is null.


If no SecurityException is raised, Demand succeeds.

This method acts against the principal attached to the calling thread.

By default the principal policy is set to UnauthenticatedPrincipal. If you do not set the principal policy to WindowsPrincipal, a demand for principal permission will fail. The following code should be executed before the demand for principal permission occurs:
