    Probably what you are after is a Security Descriptor, I suggest that you begin your research here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/fileio/file-security-and-access-rights


    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthz/security-descriptors

    This can be used to protect both registry objects and files. It can be set from user mode
