Strong name consists of an Assemblys identity, that means the Assemblies can be assigned a cryptographic signature. The strong name guarantees the integrity of the assembly which prevents someone from taking over the name of the assembly.

Strong Name includes the name of the .net assembly, version number, culture identity, and a public key token. It is generated from an assembly file using the corresponding private key. Strong names guarantee name uniqueness by relying on unique key pairs.

To create a key pair

At the command prompt, type the following command:

sn -k fileName

In this command, file name is the name of the output file containing the key pair.
