public FileSecurity GetAccessControl()
While the FileStream class and GetAccessControl can be used to retrieve the access control list (ACL) entries of an existing file, consider using File.GetAccessControl method, as it is easier to use.
Use the GetAccessControl method to retrieve the ACL entries for a file.
