User Property

WindowsIdentity.User Property

Gets the security identifier (SID) for the user.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(false)]
public SecurityIdentifier User { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier
An object for the user.

The SID uniquely identifies a user or group on all Windows NT implementations.

NoteNote

The WindowsIdentity object returned by the GetAnonymous method is not the same as the Windows anonymous user. This property gets null for an anonymous user represented by the WindowsIdentity object returned by the GetAnonymous method; it does not get the SID representing an anonymous Windows user.
