SWbemSecurity object

The SWbemSecurity object gets or sets security settings, such as privileges, COM impersonations, and authentication levels assigned to an object. The SWbemLocator, SWbemServices, SWbemObject, SWbemObjectSet, SWbemObjectPath, SWbemLastError, and SWbemEventSource objects have a Security_ property, which is the SWbemSecurity object. When you retrieve an instance or view the WMI security log, you might need to set the properties of the Security_ object.

The VBScript CreateObject call cannot create the Security object. The security settings in this object do not identify the authentication, impersonation, or privilege settings on a connection to WMI, or the security in effect for the proxy when an object is delivered to a sink in an asynchronous call. For more information, see Maintaining WMI Security.
