Windows Shared Folders rights – data extraction and collect

by Brainwave SAS


This Add-on provides means to import the permissions of one or many NTFS File Shares.

The Add-on includes discovery, collector and silo files which use the CSV files containing the extracted rights on shares and files.
It also includes a PowerShell script that can be used to generate the CSV extraction file used as the entry point of the collector.
The files and folders of the NTFS file share are imported as permissions and regrouped in an application specifically created for each extracted share.
This Add-on requires the Active Directory Add-on to import the accounts and groups of all the AD domains that hold rights on the file system.

Documentation on how to extract ACLs data using Brainwave GRC script is available in /library/contribs/bw_win_sharedfolders/
