Security Descriptor

Overview#

Security Descriptor is referred to as NT-Sec-Desc

Security Descriptor structure is a compact binary representation of the security associated with an object in a Microsoft Active Directory or on a File System, or in other Data Stores.

Security Descriptor is not, however, convenient for use in tools that operate primarily on text strings. Therefore, a text-based form of the Security Descriptor is available for situations when a Security Descriptor must be carried by a text method. This format is the Security Descriptor Description Language (SDDL)
