     Hi Serge! I believe you mean All_Code. You can use the .Net Framework
Configuration Tool, but you won't be able to realisticly use the publisher
condition in the way you want. If you specify this for All_Code then all code
that has not been signed with your Authenticode certificate will not be able
to run. You are not allowed to sign assemblies that you do not own and
developed yourself. There is no "shortcut" for blocking authorized code. The
publisher condition would be better if you were deploying an assembly that
your company created and it needed special permissions. I hope this helps and
I hope you have a great day!
