Strong names and Assembly loading

The MSDN Flash newsletter that hit my inbox today contained a number of interesting things, but what most piqued my interest was a link to a very good article on VSJ.

Titled Strength in naming, it provides a very good overview of how strong names are used to sign assemblies, which in turn allows them to be inserted into the GAC.

In it, Ian Stevenson provides a very nice little flow-chart of the assembly loading process - the article is worth a read just for that.
