The ISecurityInformation interface enables the access control editor to communicate with the caller of the CreateSecurityPage and EditSecurity functions. The editor calls the interface methods to retrieve information that is used to initialize its pages and to determine the editing options available to the user. The editor also calls the interface methods to pass the user's input back to the application.
The LPSECURITYINFO type is a pointer to an ISecurityInformation object.
