Represents a set of access rights to be audited for a user or group. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
|MutexAuditRule(IdentityReference, MutexRights, AuditFlags)|
Initializes a new instance of theclass, specifying the user or group to audit, the rights to audit, and whether to audit success, failure, or both.
Gets the access mask for this rule.(Inherited from AuthorizationRule.)
Gets the audit flags for this audit rule.(Inherited from AuditRule.)
Gets the value of flags that determine how this rule is inherited by child objects.(Inherited from AuthorizationRule.)
Gets a value indicating whether this rule is explicitly set or is inherited from a parent container object.(Inherited from AuthorizationRule.)
Gets the access rights affected by the audit rule.
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
The MutexSecurity.class is one of a set of classes that the .NET Framework provides for managing Windows access control security on named system mutexes. For an overview of these classes and their relationship to the underlying Windows access control structures, see
Windows access control security is meaningful only for named system mutexes. If a Mutex object represents a local mutex, access control is irrelevant.
To get a list of the audit rules currently applied to a named mutex, use the Mutex.GetAccessControl method to get a MutexSecurity object, and then use its GetAuditRules method to obtain a collection of objects.
objects do not map one-to-one with access control entries in the underlying discretionary access control list (DACL). When you get the set of all audit rules for a mutex, the set contains the minimum number of rules currently required to express all the access control entries.
The underlying access control entries change as you apply and remove rules. The information in rules is merged if possible, to maintain the smallest number of access control entries. Thus, when you read the current list of rules, it might not look exactly like the list of all the rules you have added.
Use Mutex.SetAccessControl method to get the MutexSecurity object. Modify the MutexSecurity object by using its methods to add the rule, and then use the Mutex.SetAccessControl method to reattach the security object.objects to specify access rights to be audited for a user or group. To apply a rule to a named system mutex, use the
Changes you make to a MutexSecurity object do not affect the access levels of the named mutex until you call the Mutex.SetAccessControl method to assign the altered security object to the named mutex.
MutexSecurity class to add or remove rules; as you do this, the underlying access control entries are modified.objects are immutable. Security for a mutex is modified using the methods of the
Security on synchronization objects is not supported for Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition.
