  SECURITY_INFORMATION securityInfo,
  PSID                 *sidOwner,
  PSID                 *sidGroup,

  PACL                 *sacl,
  PSECURITY_DESCRIPTOR *securityDescriptor
);

Parameters

Handle for an open session to the filter engine. Call FwpmEngineOpen0 to open a session to the filter engine.

The type of security information to retrieve.

sidOwner

The owner security identifier (SID) in the returned security descriptor.

sidGroup

The primary group security identifier (SID) in the returned security descriptor.

dacl

Type: PACL*

The discretionary access control list (DACL) in the returned security descriptor.

Return Value

Return code/value Description
ERROR_SUCCESS
0
The security descriptor was successfully retrieved.
FWP_E_* error code
0x80320001—0x80320039
A Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) specific error. See WFP Error Codes for details.
RPC_* error code
0x80010001—0x80010122

Remarks

The returned securityDescriptor parameter must be freed through a call to FwpmFreeMemory0. The other four returned parameters must not be freed, as they point to addresses within the securityDescriptor parameter.

This function behaves like the standard Win32 GetSecurityInfo function. The caller needs the same standard access rights as described in the GetSecurityInfo reference topic.
