- In Windows-based systems, a list of access control entries that apply to an entire object, a set of the object's properties, or an individual property of an object, which define the access granted to one or more security principals. All objects in the Active Directory are protected by a security descriptor - the security descriptor contains an access control list which contains access control entries (ACEs) - these ACEs collectively specify the set of permissions that various security principals (users, groups, computers) have on that object.
