Indicates whether security is enabled for the current object. COM+ security is enabled unless the object is running in the client's process.
This method has no parameters.
If security is enabled for this object, the return value is TRUE. Otherwise, it is FALSE.
In the COM+ environment, server and library applications can use role-based security. IsSecurityEnabled returns TRUE when an application uses role-based security, and role-based security is enabled both for the application and the specific component that called the method.
MTS 2.0: In MTS 2.0, this method always returns FALSE when the current object is running in a library application, because MTS library applications cannot use role-based security. However, in the COM+ environment, library applications optionally can use role-based security.
