This module provides authorization services against file-system access-control lists (ACLs). When the mode attribute of the authentication Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema) configuration element is set to Windows so that the WindowsAuthenticationModule is being used for the application, the FileAuthorizationModule module ensures that the requesting user is allowed read or write access to the resource, depending on the request verb, before executing the request. For more information, see the CheckFileAccessForUser method.
