.NET interview questions: - Delay signing in .NET?

The whole point about strong names is to ensure that the clients (UI, External components etc) who is consuming the DLL knows that the DLL was published from a valid source. This authenticity is verified by using strong names. The strong name protection is good from external hackers but what if your own developers think of doing something mischievous.

That's where delay signing helps. The strong name key has two keys public key and private key. You only share the public key with your developers so that they can work seamlessly. The private key is stored in a secured location and when the DLL is about to be deployed on production the key is injected for further security.
