SetServiceObjectSecurity info  Overview  Group

The SetServiceObjectSecurity function sets the security descriptor of a service object.

BOOL SetServiceObjectSecurity(

    SC_HANDLE hService,

// handle of service

    SECURITY_INFORMATION dwSecurityInformation,

// type of security information requested

    PSECURITY_DESCRIPTOR lpSecurityDescriptor 

// address of security descriptor



Identifies the service. This handle is returned by the OpenService or CreateService function. The access required for this handle depends on the security information specified in the dwSecurityInformation parameter.
Specifies the security information to be set. Any or all of the following flags can be specified:




Sets the objectís owner security identifier (SID). The hService handle must have WRITE_OWNER access, or the calling process must be the objectís owner.


Sets the objectís primary group SID. The hService handle must have WRITE_OWNER access, or the calling process must be the objectís owner.


Sets the objectís discretionary access control list (ACL). The hService handle must have WRITE_DAC access, or the calling process must be the objectís owner.


Sets the objectís system ACL. The calling process must have the SE_SECURITY_NAME privilege. For more information about security privileges, see Privileges.

Points to a SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR structure containing the new security information.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


The following error codes can be set by the service control manager. Other error codes can be set by the registry functions that are called by the service control manager.




The specified handle was not opened with the required access, or the calling process is not the owner of the object.


The specified handle is invalid.


The specified security information or security descriptor is invalid.


The specified service has been marked for deletion.


The SetServiceObjectSecurity function sets the specified portions of the service objectís security descriptor, based on the information specified in the lpSecurityDescriptor buffer. This function replaces any or all of the security information associated with the service object, according to the flags set in the dwSecurityInformation parameter and subject to the calling processís access rights.

The initial security descriptor of a service object is created by the service control manager, based on the security descriptor of the process that called the CreateService function to create the service. You can change the security descriptor by calling the SetServiceObjectSecurity function.
