Remarks

The returned securityDescriptor parameter must be freed through a call to FwpmFreeMemory0. The other four returned parameters must not be freed, as they point to addresses within the securityDescriptor parameter.

This function behaves like the standard Win32 GetSecurityInfo function. The caller needs the same standard access rights as described in the GetSecurityInfo reference topic.
