How to authenticate calling assembly


I usually build a business object model as a separate assembly so it
can be reused. For security, I require that the consumer of this
assembly (usually a Windows app or ASP.NET web app) provide the
database connection string in a Configure() method. However, I would
prefer that the assembly is "pre-configured", i.e. the connection
string is stored in the business layer assembly.

If I embed a database connection string (or other sensitive info) in
the business layer assembly, is there a way to ensure that only
applications I build can reference and/or consume that assembly?
