BizTalk | Replacing Strong Name Keys

Background Strong Names provide .NET Framework assemblies with unique identities. When the .NET Framework loads a strong-named assembly for a referring assembly, it verifies the strong name signature. If the strong name signature of the assembly cannot be verified, the .NET Framework will not load the assembly. !Do not rely on strong names for security. They provide a unique identity only! Alternatively in our case, BizTalk assemblies are loaded into the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).
