22.6. Win32::FileSecurity

The Win32::FileSecurity module allows you to work with NT File System (NTFS) file permissions. File permissions are stored as Discretionary Access Control Lists (DACLs) for each file or directory. These lists contain a bitmask specifying the permission rights for users on the file or directory. This module implements a DACL as a permissions hash in which each key is a username, and the value is the bitmask for the permissions.

The FileSecurity module exports the following constants to describe user permissions:

ACCESS_SYSTEM_SECURITY     READ or R
CHANGE or C                SPECIFIC_RIGHTS_ALL
DELETE                     STANDARD_RIGHTS_ALL
FULL or F                  STANDARD_RIGHTS_EXECUTE
GENERIC_ALL                STANDARD_RIGHTS_READ
GENERIC_EXECUTE            STANDARD_RIGHTS_REQUIRED
GENERIC_READ               STANDARD_RIGHTS_WRITE
GENERIC_WRITE              SYNCHRONIZE
MAXIMUM_ALLOWED            WRITE_DAC
READ_CONTROL               WRITE_OWNER

Using the constant function on one of these constants gives its value, and bitmasks or multiple permissions settings can be made by supplying a list of these constants to the MakeMask function.

The following functions are exported by the Win32::FileSecurity module.
