WlanGetSecuritySettings function

The WlanGetSecuritySettings function gets the security settings associated with a configurable object.

Syntax

DWORD WlanGetSecuritySettings(
  HANDLE                  hClientHandle,
  WLAN_SECURABLE_OBJECT   SecurableObject,
  PWLAN_OPCODE_VALUE_TYPE pValueType,
  LPWSTR                  *pstrCurrentSDDL,
  PDWORD                  pdwGrantedAccess
);

Parameters

hClientHandle

The client's session handle, obtained by a previous call to the WlanOpenHandle function.

SecurableObject

A WLAN_SECURABLE_OBJECT value that specifies the object to which the security settings apply.

pValueType

A pointer to a WLAN_OPCODE_VALUE_TYPE value that specifies the source of the security settings.

Value Meaning
wlan_opcode_value_type_set_by_group_policy
The security settings were set by group policy.
wlan_opcode_value_type_set_by_user
The security settings were set by the user. A user can set security settings by calling WlanSetSecuritySettings.

pstrCurrentSDDL

On input, this parameter must be NULL.

On output, this parameter receives a pointer to the security descriptor string that specifies the security settings for the object if the function call succeeds. For more information about this string, see WlanSetSecuritySettings function.

pdwGrantedAccess

The access mask of the object.

Value Meaning
WLAN_READ_ACCESS
The caller can view the object's permissions.
WLAN_EXECUTE_ACCESS
The caller can read from and execute the object. WLAN_EXECUTE_ACCESS has the same value as the bitwise OR combination WLAN_READ_ACCESS | WLAN_EXECUTE_ACCESS.
WLAN_WRITE_ACCESS
The caller can read from, execute, and write to the object. WLAN_WRITE_ACCESS has the same value as the bitwise OR combination WLAN_READ_ACCESS | WLAN_EXECUTE_ACCESS | WLAN_WRITE_ACCESS.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value may be one of the following return codes.

Return code Description
ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER
A parameter is incorrect. This error is returned if any of the following conditions occur:
  • hClientHandle is NULL.
  • pstrCurrentSDDL is NULL.
  • pdwGrantedAccess is NULL.
  • SecurableObject is set to a value greater than or equal to WLAN_SECURABLE_OBJECT_COUNT (12).
ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE
A handle is invalid. This error is returned if the handle specified in the hClientHandle parameter was not found in the handle table.
ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED
The caller does not have sufficient permissions.
ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED
This function was called from an unsupported platform. This value will be returned if this function was called from a Windows XP with SP3 or Wireless LAN API for Windows XP with SP2 client.

Remarks

The caller is responsible for freeing the memory allocated to the security descriptor string pointed to by the pstrCurrentSDDL parameter if the function succeeds. When no longer needed, the memory for the security descriptor string should be freed by calling WlanFreeMemory function and passing in the pstrCurrentSDDL parameter.
