What is the difference between a strong and weak named assemblies?

 Posted by Akiii on 6/7/2011 | Category: .NET Framework Interview questions | Views: 9211 | Points: 40

1. Weak named assemblies can be duplicated and tampered with, where as strong named assemblies cannot be tampered and duplicated.

2. Strong named assemblies can be copied into GAC(GLOBAL ASSEMBLY CACHE), where as weak named assemblies cannot be copied.

3. A single copy of strong named assembly present in the GAC(GLOBAL ASSEMBLY CACHE) can be shared with multiple applications, where as weak named assembly must be copied into the bin directory of each project.

Thanks and Regards
