My understanding of things is ...

There are 2 types of assemblies: private and shared: Private are placed in the same directory as the application, they do not need to be signed. Shared are installed in the GAC (Global Assembly Cache), they must be signed.

The .NET runtime uses the combination of assembly name, version and public key as a unique key for each assembly, this unique key is called the strong name.

As Pete mentioned, the key is generated by you. By keeping the private key private you prevent others from spoofing your assembly. If you manage final approval for assemblies in your company you may also want to look at 'delayed signing' which allows you to sign with the public key (for testing), and then add the private for release.

As to whether you should sign your article assembly ... If you are going to maintain it and expect it to be used as is, then i'd say yes. If you intend it to illustrate the concepts in the article and expect people to integrate the ideas into their own assemblies, then i'd say no ... i'd expect no.

...cmk

The idea that I can be presented with a problem, set out to logically solve it with the tools at hand, and wind up with a program that could not be legally used because someone else followed the same logical steps some years ago and filed for a patent on it is horrifying.
