Imports System.IO
Imports System.Security.AccessControl
...

Dim folder As DirectoryInfo = New DirectoryInfo("c:\test")
Dim security As DirectorySecurity = folder.GetAccessControl()

'In this object, "security", you have a lot of information about access rules, audit rules, and so on about the folder.

'Check the MSDN documentation for the DirectorySecurity class and how to deal with it:

Hope that helps.
