GetSecurityDescriptorDacl info  Overview  Group

The GetSecurityDescriptorDacl function retrieves a pointer to the discretionary access-control list (ACL) in a specified security descriptor.

BOOL GetSecurityDescriptorDacl(

    PSECURITY_DESCRIPTOR pSecurityDescriptor,

// address of security descriptor

    LPBOOL lpbDaclPresent,

// address of flag for presence of disc. ACL

    PACL *pDacl,

// address of pointer to ACL

    LPBOOL lpbDaclDefaulted 

// address of flag for default disc. ACL



Points to the SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR structure containing the discretionary ACL. The function retrieves a pointer to it.
Points to a flag the function sets to indicate the presence of a discretionary ACL in the specified security descriptor. If this parameter is TRUE, the security descriptor contains a discretionary ACL, and the remaining output parameters in this function receive valid values. If this parameter is FALSE, the security descriptor does not contain a discretionary ACL, and the remaining output parameters do not receive valid values.
Points to a pointer to an ACL structure. If a discretionary ACL exists, the function sets the pointer pointed to by pDacl to the address of the security descriptor’s discretionary ACL. If a discretionary ACL does not exist, no value is stored.

If the function stores a NULL value in the pointer pointed to by pDacl, the security descriptor has a NULL discretionary ACL. A NULL discretionary ACL implicitly allows all access to an object.

Points to a flag set to the value of the SE_DACL_DEFAULTED flag in the SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR_CONTROL structure if a discretionary ACL exists for the security descriptor. If this flag is TRUE, the discretionary ACL was retrieved by a default mechanism; if FALSE, the discretionary ACL was explicitly specified by a user.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
