can third party dll can a raw byte[] image of process memory

Yes/No. Most games that were created before the .NET era were cracked, despite some huge investments in copy-protection. It's not doable to reverse-engineer the entire code, but that's rarely done at all - bypassing the protection or getting the password to the database is often enough.

So all this jazz about AppDomain are *practically useless* from security stand point. I've also tried to throw an exception from code from another appDomain, it crashes the whole app (see below).

Sounds like all theories surrounding appDomain completely b*llsh*t!

Again, yes and no. An AppDomain isn't a new security-feature, it's an isolationlevel for applications. One that can be unloaded, if desired. It also means that I can execute (potentially malicious) code in a sandboxed environment[^], increasing my overall security. The code in that sandbox is restricted in what it can and cannot do.

I'm running Linux, and I have the source-code to the Operating System, as well as the Mono source-code. It'd be some work, but it could be used to backtrack what API's you're calling - even the paramaters that you pass aren't safe from prying eyes.

all this talk about AppDomain isolation are quite pointless

Depends on what you wants it for, and how secure you need to be. Do you need to prevent an ordinary user from making modifications? Prevent someone from seeing the users' data? Or are you creating an application for a nuclear plant?

In the first case, encryption would suffice. In the second case, obfuscation would suffice. In the last case, you simply need total control over the machine - then you'd only be vulnerable for stuxnet Smile | :)
