WindowsIdentity.User Property

Gets the security identifier (SID) for the user.

Namespace:  System.Security.Principal
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[<ComVisibleAttribute(false)>]
member User : SecurityIdentifier with get

Property Value

Type: System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier
An object for the user.

The SID uniquely identifies a user or group on all Windows NT implementations.

NoteNote

The WindowsIdentity object returned by the GetAnonymous method is not the same as the Windows anonymous user. This property gets a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) for an anonymous user represented by the WindowsIdentity object returned by the GetAnonymous method; it does not get the SID representing an anonymous Windows user.
