How can get SID of user in minifilter driver

m_sldm_sld Member - All Emails Posts: 25

I want to get SID(security ID) of local logged in user to windows via kernel driver; such as: S-1-5-21-187542237-892059459-3562553626-1001
How can get it?
What is Data->Iopb->Parameters.QueryQuota.StartSid and SidList parameters that is in callback_data of IRP dispatch routin? Are these helpful for me?

    The only reliable time to get secuiry information is during IRP_MJ_CREATE. Take a poke at the SecurityContext, there should be something there.
