RtlSetOwnerSecurityDescriptor function

The RtlSetOwnerSecurityDescriptor routine sets the owner information of an absolute-format security descriptor. It replaces any owner information that is already present in the security descriptor.

Syntax

NTSYSAPI NTSTATUS RtlSetOwnerSecurityDescriptor(
  PSECURITY_DESCRIPTOR SecurityDescriptor,
  PSID                 Owner,
  BOOLEAN              OwnerDefaulted
);

Parameters

SecurityDescriptor

Pointer to the SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR structure whose owner is to be set. RtlSetOwnerSecurityDescriptor replaces any existing owner with the new owner.

Owner

Pointer to a security identifier (SID) structure for the security descriptor's new primary owner. This pointer, not the SID structure itself, is copied into the security descriptor. If this parameter is NULL, RtlSetOwnerSecurityDescriptor clears the security descriptor's owner information. This marks the security descriptor as having no owner.

OwnerDefaulted

Set to TRUE if the owner information is derived from a default mechanism. If this value is TRUE, it is default information. RtlSetOwnerSecurityDescriptor sets the SE_OWNER_DEFAULTED flag in the security descriptor's SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR_CONTROL field. If this parameter is FALSE, the SE_OWNER_DEFAULTED flag is cleared.

Return Value

RtlSetOwnerSecurityDescriptor can return one of the following status codes:

Return code Description
STATUS_SUCCESS
The owner was successfully set or reset.
STATUS_UNKNOWN_REVISION
The given security descriptor's version is not recognized by this routine.
STATUS_INVALID_SECURITY_DESCR
The given security descriptor is not a valid absolute security descriptor.
