The mother lode of well-known SIDs


For your enjoyment, I share with you a link to the most comprehensive list of well-known SIDs I've found yet.

A little present for the holidays.

    After reading the title, I was expecting more something along the lines of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0Ja0UzAtRE

    1. Brian_EE says:

      Or better yet, all known GUIDs

      1. Yukkuri says:

        How about a list of all GUIDs :D

        I much rather was referring back to this ONT article: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20131029-00/?p=2803/

    You can actually brute force both the well-known SIDs and the SDDL aliases to catch them all. It is still best to use the raw SIDs in code because they seem to be assigned before the well-known SIDs in some cases (I guess someone has to decide that they are important/common enough to become well-known?).

    Proof that certain parts of Windows need simplification :D

    The need for a list suggests to me that these SIDS aren’t very well known.

    The follow up question is who decided to use “well-known”, when the Computer Science and Everyday English meaning of the phrase don’t mean the same thing.

    Still missing a lot of real-life SIDs, like S-1-5-90
