Manage NTFS permissions with ASP.net

Is there away to manage NTFS permissions from asp.net I have looked at ADSI but that doesn't allow you to manage the folder permissions. Is there an API like ADSI the <%@ Import Namespace = "System.DirectoryServices"%>.

Thanks

Investigate a little more about  this library.



using Microsoft.Win32.Security;


Here's a method to add a dir, and set NTFS permissions on it for a given user:


private Boolean CreateDir(String strSitePath, String strUserName) {

       Boolean bOk;

       try {

              Directory.CreateDirectory(strSitePath);

              SecurityDescriptor secDesc = SecurityDescriptor.GetFileSecurity(strSitePath, SECURITY_INFORMATION.DACL_SECURITY_INFORMATION);

              Dacl dacl = secDesc.Dacl;

              Sid sidUser = new Sid (strUserName);

 

              // allow: folder, subfolder and files

              // modify

              dacl.AddAce (new AceAccessAllowed (sidUser, AccessType.GENERIC_WRITE | AccessType.GENERIC_READ | AccessType.DELETE | AccessType.GENERIC_EXECUTE , AceFlags.OBJECT_INHERIT_ACE | AceFlags.CONTAINER_INHERIT_ACE));

             

              // deny: this folder

              // write attribs

              // write extended attribs

              // delete

              // change permissions

              // take ownership

              DirectoryAccessType DAType = DirectoryAccessType.FILE_WRITE_ATTRIBUTES | DirectoryAccessType.FILE_WRITE_EA | DirectoryAccessType.DELETE | DirectoryAccessType.WRITE_OWNER | DirectoryAccessType.WRITE_DAC;

              AccessType AType = (AccessType)DAType;

              dacl.AddAce (new AceAccessDenied (sidUser, AType));

 

              secDesc.SetDacl(dacl);

              secDesc.SetFileSecurity(strSitePath, SECURITY_INFORMATION.DACL_SECURITY_INFORMATION);

              bOk = true;

       } catch {

              bOk = false;

       }

       return bOk;

} /* CreateDir */

Unfortunately, before .NET Framework 2.0,  using win32 interop, c# and memory pointers is the only way to go.
