Details

Sid(IntPtr)

Constructs a new instance of the Sid class using an integer that represents the binary form of a security identifier (SID).

Sid(IntPtr binaryForm)

Sid(String)

Constructs a new instance of the Sid class using the specified security identifier (SID) in the SDDL format (e.g. S-1-5-1-123-456-789).

Sid(String sddlForm)

Sid(Byte[], Int32)

Constructs a new instance of the Sid class using the specified binary representation of a security identifier (SID).

Sid(Byte[] binaryForm, Int32 offset)

Parameters

  • binaryForm - An array of bytes representing the binary representation of the SID.
  • offset - Specifies the byte offset to use as the starting index when parsing the SID.

Sid(WellKnownSidType, Sid)

Constructs a new instance of the Sid class using the specified well-known security identifier (SID) type and domain SID.

Sid(WellKnownSidType sidType, Sid domainSid)

Parameters

  • sidType - Specifies the well-known SID type to construct the class from. This value must not be set to WinLogonIdsSid. For more information and a list of values, see WellKnownSidType.
  • domainSid - Specifies the domain SID. This value is required for the following sidType values:
    • WinAccountAdministratorSid
    • WinAccountGuestSid
    • WinAccountKrbtgtSid
    • WinAccountDomainAdminsSid
    • WinAccountDomainUsersSid
    • WinAccountDomainGuestsSid
    • WinAccountComputersSid
    • WinAccountControllersSid
    • WinAccountCertAdminsSid
    • WinAccountSchemaAdminsSid
    • WinAccountEnterpriseAdminsSid
    • WinAccountPolicyAdminsSid
    • WinAccountRasAndIasServersSid

Sid(SecurityIdentifier)

Constructs a new instance of the Sid class by copying data from the specified instance of the SecurityIdentifier class.

Sid(SecurityIdentifier sid)

CompareTo()

Compares the SID with another SID.

Int32 CompareTo(Sid otherSid)

Return value

The method returns an Int32 that indicates the relative order of the objects being compared. The return value has the following meanings:

  • If the return value is less than zero, this SID is less than the SID specified in the otherSid parameter.
  • If the return value is 0, this SID is equal to the SID specified in the otherSid parameter.
  • If the return value is greater than zero, this SID is greater than the SID specified in the otherSid parameter

GetObjectData()

Populates an instance of the SerializationInfo class with data required to serialize the instance of the Sid class.

void GetObjectData(SerializationInfo info, StreamingContext context)

Parameters

  • info - Specifies an instance of the SerializationInfo class to populate with data.
  • context - Specifies the destination for this serialization.

GetBinaryForm()

Copies the binary representation of the security identifier to a Byte[] array.

void GetBinaryForm(Byte[] binaryForm, Int32 offset)

Parameters

  • binaryForm - Specifies the Byte[] array to receive the SID.
  • offset - Specifies the byte offset to use as the starting index in the array.

IsAccountSid()

Checks whether the security identifier is a valid Windows account SID. If the SID does not represent a Windows account SID, the method throws the ArgumentNullException exception.

Boolean IsAccountSid()

IsBuiltin()

Checks whether the security identifier is a built-in SID.

Boolean IsBuiltin()

IsEqualDomainSid()

Checks whether the security identifier is from the same domain as the specified SID.

Boolean IsEqualDomainSid(SecurityIdentifier sid)

IsValidTargetType()

Checks whether the specified type is a valid translation type for the Sid class. The following target types are valid: NTAccount and SecurityIdentifier.

Boolean IsValidTargetType(Type targetType)

IsWellKnown()

Checks whether the security identifier matches the specified well-known security identifier type.

Boolean IsWellKnown(WellKnownSidType type)

Parameters

The sidType parameter specifies the well-known SID type to compare the SID to. For more information and a list of values, see WellKnownSidType.


Translate()

Translates the account name represented by the SID into another IdentityReference-derived type.

IdentityReference Translate(Type targetType)

Parameters

The targetType parameter specifies the target type for the conversion. The target type must be a type that is considered valid by the IsValidTargetType method.
