Many applications have similar operations to which a trustee can be assigned rights, for example, reading, writing, and deleting objects. When you assign rights for these general operations, the application interprets them in a way specific to that application. For example, Message Queuing interprets the reading operation as receiving or peeking messages from a queue. The AccessControlEntry class provides access to these common rights.

When working with access control entries, you specify a trustee to which you are assigning the rights. You must set at least one of the GenericAccessRights, StandardAccessRights, or CustomAccessRights properties to indicate which rights to assign to the trustee. You can set the EntryType property to specify whether the rights you indicate should be granted or denied. The default entry type is to allow rights.
