LSA Policy Objects

The LSA stores local security policy information in a set of objects. Your application can query or edit the local security policy by accessing these objects.

The set consists of the following four objects:

  • Policy contains global policy information.
  • TrustedDomain contains information about a trusted domain.
  • Account contains information about a user, group, or local group account.
  • Private Data contains protected information, such as server account passwords. This information is stored as encrypted strings.

For more information on how to use the LSA Policy functions to manage the information stored in these objects, see Using LSA Policy.
