Public propertyTrusteeTypeGets or sets the type of the trustee, which identifies whether the trustee is a user, group, computer, domain, or alias.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)

The trustee is the entity to whom you are granting or denying access rights when you create an access control entry. Set the TrusteeType member (either directly or using the Trustee constructor) to specify whether the trustee is a user, computer, or other type. If you do not specify the trustee type before setting permissions for the trustee, the type defaults to Unknown.

You must specify a value for the Name property before using the Trustee to set permissions. The Name contains the name of the user, group, or computer account to which the new access rights will be assigned. Optionally, you can set the SystemName property to identify the name of the system on which the trustee account is looked up to resolve the name's security identifier. If you do not specify a value for SystemName, the local computer looks up the account name.
