RtlSetDaclSecurityDescriptor function

The RtlSetDaclSecurityDescriptor routine sets the DACL information of an absolute-format security descriptor, or if there is already a DACL present in the security descriptor, it is superseded.

Syntax

NTSTATUS RtlSetDaclSecurityDescriptor(
  _Inout_  PSECURITY_DESCRIPTOR SecurityDescriptor,
  _In_     BOOLEAN              DaclPresent,
  _In_opt_ PACL                 Dacl,
  _In_opt_ BOOLEAN              DaclDefaulted
);

Parameters

SecurityDescriptor

A pointer to a SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR structure. This structure is the security descriptor to which the DACL is to be applied.

DaclPresent

Whether to indicate that a DACL is present in the security descriptor. If this parameter is FALSE, RtlSetDaclSecurityDescriptor sets the SE_DACL_PRESENT control flag in the security descriptor to FALSE. In this case, the remaining optional parameters (Dacl and DaclDefaulted) are ignored. If DaclPresent is TRUE, the SE_DACL_PRESENT flag in the security descriptor is set to TRUE and the remaining optional parameters are not ignored. For more information about the SE_DACL_PRESENT flag, see SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR_CONTROL.

Dacl

A pointer to the DACL for the security descriptor. If this parameter is NULL, the DACL pointer in the security descriptor is set to NULL. A NULL DACL pointer unconditionally grants all access to an object and is not the same as an empty DACL. An empty DACL denies all access to an object. If Dacl is non-NULL, the ACL structure supplied by the caller is referenced by, but not copied into, the security descriptor. The caller can allocate the ACL structure from paged system memory, and can call the RtlCreateAcl routine to initialize the structure.

DaclDefaulted

Whether the DACL was supplied by some default mechanism, or was explicitly specified by the caller. If this parameter is TRUE, the DACL was supplied by a default mechanism. If DaclDefaulted is FALSE, the caller explicitly specified the DACL. RtlSetDaclSecurityDescriptor copies the value specified for this parameter to the SE_DACL_DEFAULTED control flag in the security descriptor. For more information about the SE_DACL_DEFAULTED flag, see SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR_CONTROL.

Return Value

RtlSetDaclSecurityDescriptor can return one of the following status values.

Return code Description
STATUS_SUCCESS
The call completed successfully.
STATUS_UNKNOWN_REVISION
The revision of the security descriptor is unknown.
STATUS_INVALID_SECURITY_DESCR
The security descriptor is not an absolute format security descriptor.
