__SecurityDescriptor class

The __SecurityDescriptor abstract system class represents a security descriptor.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

Syntax

class __SecurityDescriptor
{
  uint32 ControlFlags;
  __ACE  DACL[];
  __ACE  Group;
  __ACE  Owner;
  __ACE  SACL;
  uint64 TIME_CREATED;
};

Members

The __SecurityDescriptor class has these types of members:
