public sealed class FileAuthorizationModule : System.Web.IHttpModule


This module provides authorization services against file-system access-control lists (ACLs). When the mode attribute of the authentication configuration element is set to Windows so that the System.Web.Security.WindowsAuthenticationModule is being used for the application, the System.Web.Security.FileAuthorizationModule module ensures that the requesting user is allowed read or write access to the resource, depending on the request verb, before executing the request. For more information, see the FileAuthorizationModule.CheckFileAccessForUser(string, IntPtr, string) method.
