Ahmed El Malt tells us that .Net 2.0 introduced new assembly-level attribute , InternalsVisibleTo attribute which is defined in the System.Runtime.CompilerServices namespace . This attribute allows you to expose internal types and methods to another specified assembly. Ex.:

[assembly: InternalsVisibleTo("MyFriendAssembly")]

So any class in the assemblies MyFriendAssembly will be able to use MyInternalClass and call its public or internal members. In addition, any subclass in the MyFriendAssembly assembly will be able to access members marked as protected internal.
