Setting and getting File/Folder permissions From Active Directory


We are trying to achieve the following condition for an active directory experiment,

1) When user login, check the user from active directory.
2) If user exist, get the list of permissions its assigned to.(If its in a group, get the permissions of the groups) from active directory

So, we know that file/folders permissions is set in the properties-->security, can i get the list of permissions as stated in the second condition if the condition is achieve. If not, is there any other way to set the permission in order to achieve the condition?

when the user logs in they get a token that identifies their user account and the groups that they are a member of.

When you set the ntfs file permissions on an item (folder/file) and grant permissions for a group since the member if the user is a member of that group they will use the group permissions. Using groups rather than individual users is the best policy.
