This one should create a 'guest' SID, try it...

PSID CreateUserSID ( void)
{
    PSID                        psid;

    SID_IDENTIFIER_AUTHORITY    SystemSidAuthority  =   SECURITY_NT_AUTHORITY;

    if  (   !AllocateAndInitializeSid   (   &SystemSidAuthority,
                                            1,
                                            DOMAIN_GROUP_RID_USERS,
                                            0,
                                            0,
                                            0,
                                            0,
                                            0,
                                            0,
                                            0,
                                            &psid
                                        )
        )
        return ( NULL);

    return ( psid);
}

Who must create SID? User mode application? this is not network,
it's single NT workstation with many users, but only Administrators applications can open named event.

Your creator of the event should create the SID, which is always necessary, regardless whether there's a network or not.

OK,
NT driver create named event.
It use IoCreateSynchronizationEvent() for creating event. How do change security of this event?

You should use 'NtSetSecutityObject()' to set the created SID for your event (i'm not _that_ familiar with kernel drivers, thus i can't offer an example ;-)

Ooops - 'NtSetSecutityObject()' should of course read 'NtSetSecurityObject()'

I can't find NtSetSecurityObject()in NT DDK documentation.
Is this kernel function?

Well, it's a 'native' NT function exported by 'ntdll.h'...

I use other way:
Create an event in the application then pass this event to the driver via DeviceIOControl.
In driver:
 ObReferenceObjectByHandle(hUserEvent,
                           SYNCHRONIZE,
                           NULL,
                           KernelMode,
                           &pDeviceExtension->hEvent,
                           NULL
                           );

All works fine...

Thanks, I create SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR with DACL=NULL, and set one with NtSetSecurityObject(). This work.
