PROCESS_MITIGATION_POLICY_INFORMATION

17 Oct 2021 02:15

the definition of PROCESS_MITIGATION_POLICY_INFORMATION does not include the PROCESS_MITIGATION_DEP_POLICY policy nor the PROCESS_MITIGATION_USER_SHADOW_STACK_POLICY and PROCESS_MITIGATION_REDIRECTION_TRUST_POLICY.

Is there some reason for PROCESS_MITIGATION_DEP_POLICY to not be included or was it simply omitted ?

Also, the last two (shadow stack and redirection) are somewhat new. I am presuming that is why they didn't make it into the definition (if memory serves, they are defined in ntddk.h)

Comments welcome.

It's not part of this structure and is handled separately by Windows.

Shadow stack has been there for a while. Redirection was only added by Microsoft recently for Windows 11.
