You should always prefer to use .pfx file when strong naming your application, unless using an existing strong name key pair file (.snk).

The .pfx files are more secure as it is protected by password, so whenever another user tries to use the file, that user will be prompted for the password. Also the other advantage of a .pfx file is that you can add it to a certificate container.
