Local Security Policy

Local Security Policy

The local security policy of a system is a set of information about the security of a local computer.

The local security policy information includes the following:

  • The domains trusted to authenticate logon attempts.
  • Which user accounts may access the system and how. For example, interactively, through a network, or as a service.
  • The rights and privileges assigned to accounts.
  • The security auditing policy.

The Local Security Authority (LSA) stores the local policy information in a set of LSA Policy Objects.
