Audit access rights on shared folders
From: giopas <linux () giopas eu>

Hi list,

in a typical Active Directory (Windows server 2003) corporate
environment, I would like to test access rights of all AD users on
those folders that are used for work.

The aim is to insure that confidential folders (like HR documents,
confidential agreements, Top Management folders...) are properly
restricted only to authorized people.

I found that Dumpsec 2.8.2 (the old and portable version) is quite
useful for this aim, even if in case of shortcut sometimes it goes in
However the problem is that the result is too difficult and long to be analysed,
because you have to manually go through all the directory tree in
order to see who has access right to a specific folder.

Look at the example below:

Path (exception dirs and files)         Account         Own             Dir     File
\\SRV\D$\Clients\Letters\*.*client\     guest1          dx001f01ff
\\SRV\D$\Clients\Letters\*.*client\     Administrators  all
\\SRV\D$\Clients\Letters\*.*client\     JPWQThomas      o               all

\\SRV\D$\Clients\Letters\*.*client\     SYSTEM          all
\\SRV\D$\Clients\Letters\*.*client\     EMasreten       all
\\SRV\D$\Clients\Letters\*.*client\     Users           RWXD            RWXD

How can I do it in a more effective way? Is there a tool (or a windows
script) that can help me performing this test?

Moreover, since I am not a SYS ADMIN of servers I have to audit, I
would like to have something that does not require to be installed
(i.e. portable applications or relying on DOS/NET commands).

Thank you for your help!
