Partial Trust

Starting with the .NET Framework version 3.5, partially trusted callers can access public types and methods implemented in System.ServiceModel, System.Runtime.Serialization, and System.ServiceModel.Web. This section describes supported scenarios for using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) within a partially trusted application as well as the limited subset of WCF functionality available to applications running with reduced code access security (CAS) permissions.
