Lookup Pattern

These methods enable a client to translate from a security ID (either a SID or a RID) to a user-friendly name, and vice versa. This action is useful when an end user is setting access control via a security descriptor. However, the translation methods specified in [MS-LSAT] sections and are superior because they translate a wider range of SIDs.

A client MUST first obtain a handle to the object of interest through an "open" method. See section

See section 1.3 for a description of the "lookup" pattern of methods.
