Implement IInternetSecurityManager with IWebbrowser2

I have a solution, in C,  using IWebBrowser2 that loads an html page from a stream. The html page uses websockets, and the default IE security is denying the websocket creation, so I would like to implement IInternetSecurityManager to override the security settings. I am using vtables, and my IInternetSecurityManager vtable looks like this:

static IInternetSecurityManagerVtbl InetSecMgr_vtable =
{
      InetSecMgr_QueryInterface,
      InetSecMgr_AddRef,
      InetSecMgr_Release,
      InetSecMgr_SetSecuritySite,
      InetSecMgr_GetSecuritySite,
      InetSecMgr_MapUrlToZone,
      InetSecMgr_GetSecurityId,
      InetSecMgr_ProcessUrlAction,
      InetSecMgr_QueryCustomPolicy,
      InetSecMgr_SetZoneMapping,
      InetSecMgr_GetZoneMappings
};

I created stubbed out methods for all of the above.
I am not sure how to hook it up to my browser instance(?)

Thanks!
Amy

Even MSDN has only sparse information about that whole thing. But, there is an article that describes what to implement and how to use all that, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/ms537182%28v=vs.85%29.aspx ("Implementing a Custom Security Manager").

Also, there is a MFC sample available at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/246227 ("SAMPLE: Secumgr.exe Overrides Security Manager for WebBrowser Host") that might be helpful fot that task, since it shows how to connect that to your browser.

I'm just updating this, since it has been sitting cold for a while. The first link from above didn't look like it had an example (just an exe)....correct me if I'm wrong. The second link didn't give the information I was looking for.

Oops, I got that reversed: the second link is just an exe, the first doesn't contain the info I needed.

The exe is a sef-extracting executable that contains the code ;o)

You can easily open it with any (un-)packer you use without even running it, sorry for not mentioning that in the first place.

This example is C++ with MFC, and I am using C with no MFC, but it is still the closest thing I've found to an example. Thanks!
