Configure log access

This policy setting specifies to use the security descriptor for the log using the Security Descriptor Definition Language (SDDL) string.

If you enable this policy setting, only users whose security descriptor matches the configured value can access the log.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, only system software and administrators can write or clear this log, and any authenticated user can read events from it.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
