how to browse directory security tab programmatically

I would like to build an application to collect the list of subfolders
from a given starting point including the information that can normally
be seen in the security tab of the folders.

I could not find any class giving access to this. Thanks

Yes, but it doesn't give all the details in the security tab of the
folder properties.

What version of the framework are you expecting to use? Version 2 has the
FileSystemSecurity you can use to get at the security settings of a FS
object. On V1 you can use System.Management and WMI to do this.
