go to Site Actions Under Users and Permissions
Click on Advanced Permissions
it opes of the page with User Information List
Click on Settings
there will be a link called
Permission levels
Where you can see all the permission levels
you can click on each of those permission levels to see the detailed permission settings
you can also create your own permission lever here.

Hope that Helps

Hi Manish, thanks for the reply, but that's not the list I was looking for.

irinuc,

I was hoping to figure out how many security principals were in my site collection.

Security principal threshold limit: Approximately 2,000 per ACL (Access Control List) on any securable object (scope)

What is a security principal?  "A security principal is an entity that can be positively identified and verified via a technique known as authentication.  Security principal accounts are Active Directory objects that are assigned unique security identifiers (SIDs).  A security principal account can be defined as a user account, group account[...] and is also assigned permissions to access certain network resources or Active Directory objects. " (Tech FAQ) [Oleson, Joel, SharePoint Joel, 2008, http://www.sharepointjoel.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=123 ]

I would say that Manish provided the right link in this case. That link shows the list of security principals that count against the 2000 limit.

If you want to see the entire list of accounts, groups that have permissions on any of the elements within the site collection (including subsites), I would say the easiest way may be so count the "user.aspx" list for each subsite not inheriting permissions. But I don't think these count agains the 2000 limit. Each subsite that does not inherit permissions would have it's own 2000 limit.

I also liked the way the limitations are displayed here:

just my thoughts

That limit of 2000 is per securable object - each site, list, folder or item can have its own ACL - limited to 2k users/groups.
