Hmmm, no responses yet. Perhaps a follow-up: is that fact that Microsoft-style
security descriptors are so specific to Microsoft OS's mean that there is
unlikely to be interest from this group in implementing a NT security
I know, I know -- "Well, go write one!" The thing is, I'm no C programmer.
It'd probably take me six months to even get decent at this, and my boss needs
me to get real work done. If something isn't soon coming down the pike, I'll
just go with scraping output from smbclient command-line tool.
BTW, a specific outline of how NT security descriptor could be done is in the
SNIA CIFS spec, http://www.snia.org/tech_activities/CIFS/CIFS-TR-1p00_FINAL.pdf
in section 4.5.2 and 4.5.3.
This is a real nice project, good luck to you folks working on it.
