Represents the security policy levels for the common language runtime. This class cannot be inherited.

Starting with the net_v40_long, the common language runtime (CLR) is moving away from providing security policy for computers. We recommend that you use tp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=178101 or tp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=178102 as a replacement for CLR security policy. The information in this topic applies to the .NET Framework version 3.5 and earlier; it does not apply to the net_v40_short and later. For more information about this and other changes, see Security Changes in the .NET Framework Version 4.0.
The highest level of security policy is enterprise-wide. Successive lower levels of hierarchy represent further policy restrictions, but can never grant more permissions than allowed by higher levels. The following policy levels are implemented:[The 'ordered' type of list has not been implemented in the ECMA stylesheet.]
A policy level consists of a set of code groups organized into a single rooted tree (see System.Security.Policy.CodeGroup), a set of named permission sets that are referenced by the code groups to specify permissions to be granted to code belonging to the code group, and a list of fully-trusted assemblies.
Use System.Security.SecurityManager.PolicyHierarchy to enumerate the policy levels.
