Audit of file permissions on per-user basis
From: "CHRIS GRABENSTEIN" <LFGRABC () LF VCCS EDU>

Hello list,
   Due to an upcoming audit I need to be able to produce an on-demand report
of any given user's permissions on an NTFS (Mostly Win2k, some NT4)
filesystem.

   I've tried showacls.exe but the output is not in a format I can easily
parse out results for a particular user.

   I've also tried SomarSoft's DumpSec.  I can import the results into an
access database and work with it fairly easily, but it can't seem to handle
any permissions besides read, write, or execute.  Anything else produces a
hex value that I can't interpret.  It might have to be "good enough".

   Is there a tool out there that can produce a readable and accurate report
of permissions for a particular user (or even all users in a format I can
parse myself)?  I've searched Google and the Security Focus mailing list
archives.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
