Security Checks

The CBRegistry component offers very flexible security handling. During events, applications can use information obtained from security-related methods to determine whether a request should be allowed as-is, modified before continuing, or denied immediately.

CBRegistry provides three security-related methods that applications can use to help implement security checks. They are GetOriginatorProcessName and GetOriginatorProcessId, which return the name and PID of the process that initiated the request; and GetOriginatorToken, which returns the system-defined security token of the process that initiated the request.

The latter is particularly useful when used with various methods in the Windows API, such as the GetTokenInformation function, which can be used to obtain various pieces of information about the object the token is associated with.
