SemaphoreAuditRule Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Represents a set of access rights to be audited for a user or group. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Security.AccessControl
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(false)] 
public sealed class SemaphoreAuditRule : AuditRule
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(false) */ 
public final class SemaphoreAuditRule extends AuditRule
ComVisibleAttribute(false) 
public final class SemaphoreAuditRule extends AuditRule

The SemaphoreAuditRule class is one of a set of classes that the .NET Framework provides for managing Windows access control security on named system semaphores. For an overview of these classes and their relationship to the underlying Windows access control structures, see SemaphoreSecurity.

NoteNote

Windows access control security is meaningful only for named system semaphores. If a Semaphore object represents a local semaphore, access control is irrelevant.

To get a list of the audit rules currently applied to a named semaphore, use the Semaphore.GetAccessControl method to get a SemaphoreSecurity object, and then use its GetAuditRules method to obtain a collection of SemaphoreAuditRule objects.

SemaphoreAuditRule objects do not map one-to-one with access control entries in the underlying discretionary access control list (DACL). When you get the set of all audit rules for a semaphore, the set contains the minimum number of rules currently required to express all the access control entries.

NoteNote

The underlying access control entries change as you apply and remove rules. The information in rules is merged if possible, to maintain the smallest number of access control entries. Thus, when you read the current list of rules, it might not look exactly like the list of all the rules you have added.

Use SemaphoreAuditRule objects to specify access rights to be audited for a user or group. To apply a rule to a named system semaphore, use the Semaphore.GetAccessControl method to get the SemaphoreSecurity object. Modify the SemaphoreSecurity object by using its methods to add the rule, and then use the Semaphore.SetAccessControl method to reattach the security object.

NoteImportant:

Changes you make to a SemaphoreSecurity object do not affect the access levels of the named semaphore until you call the Semaphore.SetAccessControl method to assign the altered security object to the named semaphore.

SemaphoreAuditRule objects are immutable. Security for a semaphore is modified using the methods of the SemaphoreSecurity class to add or remove rules; as you do this, the underlying access control entries are modified.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
