KnownAce Class

Encapsulates all Access Control Entry (ACE) types currently defined by Microsoft Corporation. All KnownAce objects contain a 32-bit access mask and a SecurityIdentifier object.

Namespace:  System.Security.AccessControl
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public abstract class KnownAce : GenericAce

The KnownAce type exposes the following members.

Public propertyAccessMaskGets or sets the access mask for this KnownAce object.
Public propertyAceFlagsGets or sets the AceFlags associated with this GenericAce object. (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public propertyAceTypeGets the type of this Access Control Entry (ACE). (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public propertyAuditFlagsGets the audit information associated with this Access Control Entry (ACE). (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public propertyBinaryLengthGets the length, in bytes, of the binary representation of the current GenericAce object. This length should be used before marshaling the ACL into a binary array with the GetBinaryForm() method. (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public propertyInheritanceFlagsGets flags that specify the inheritance properties of this Access Control Entry (ACE). (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public propertyIsInheritedGets a Boolean value that specifies whether this Access Control Entry (ACE) is inherited or is set explicitly. (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public propertyPropagationFlagsGets flags that specify the inheritance propagation properties of this Access Control Entry (ACE). (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public propertySecurityIdentifierGets or sets the SecurityIdentifier object associated with this KnownAce object.

Public methodCopyCreates a deep copy of this Access Control Entry (ACE). (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified GenericAce object is equal to the current GenericAce object. (Inherited from GenericAce.)
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 methodGetBinaryFormMarshals the contents of the GenericAce object into the specified byte array beginning at the specified offset. (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for the GenericAce class. The GetHashCode method is suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table. (Inherited from GenericAce.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
