SecurityIdentifier Members

Represents a security identifier (SID) and provides marshaling and comparison operations for SIDs.

The SecurityIdentifier type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public method SecurityIdentifier Overloaded. Initializes a new instance of the SecurityIdentifier class.
Top

  NameDescription
Public method CompareTo Compares the current SecurityIdentifier object with the specified SecurityIdentifier object.
Public method Equals Overloaded.
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetBinaryForm Copies the binary representation of the specified security identifier (SID) represented by the SecurityIdentifier class to a byte array.
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for the current SecurityIdentifier object. The GetHashCode method is suitable for hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table. (Overrides IdentityReference.GetHashCode().)
Public method GetType Gets the type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IsAccountSid Returns a value that indicates whether the security identifier (SID) represented by this SecurityIdentifier object is a valid Windows account SID.
Public method IsEqualDomainSid Returns a value that indicates whether the security identifier (SID) represented by this SecurityIdentifier object is from the same domain as the specified SID.
Public method IsValidTargetType Returns a value that indicates whether the specified type is a valid translation type for the SecurityIdentifier class. (Overrides IdentityReference.IsValidTargetType(Type).)
Public method IsWellKnown Returns a value that indicates whether the SecurityIdentifier object matches the specified well known security identifier (SID) type.
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString Returns the security identifier (SID), in Security Descriptor Definition Language (SDDL) format, for the account represented by the SecurityIdentifier object. An example of the SDDL format is S-1-5-9. (Overrides IdentityReference.ToString().)
Public method Translate Translates the account name represented by the SecurityIdentifier object into another IdentityReference-derived type. (Overrides IdentityReference.Translate(Type).)

  NameDescription
Public operator Static member Equality Compares two SecurityIdentifier objects to determine whether they are equal. They are considered equal if they have the same canonical representation as the one returned by the Value property or if they are both null.
Public operator Static member Inequality Compares two SecurityIdentifier objects to determine whether they are not equal. They are considered not equal if they have different canonical name representations than the one returned by the Value property or if one of the objects is null and the other is not.

  NameDescription
Public field Static member MaxBinaryLength Returns the maximum size, in bytes, of the binary representation of the security identifier.
Public field Static member MinBinaryLength Returns the minimum size, in bytes, of the binary representation of the security identifier.

  NameDescription
Public property AccountDomainSid Returns the account domain security identifier (SID) portion from the SID represented by the SecurityIdentifier object if the SID represents a Windows account SID. If the SID does not represent a Windows account SID, this property returns ArgumentNullException.
Public property BinaryLength Returns the length, in bytes, of the security identifier (SID) represented by the SecurityIdentifier object.
Public property Value Returns an uppercase Security Descriptor Definition Language (SDDL) string for the security identifier (SID) represented by this SecurityIdentifier object. (Overrides IdentityReference.Value.)
