Summary
Duplicates a NT authentication token.

C# Signature:

[DllImport("advapi32.dll", SetLastError=true)]
public extern static bool DuplicateToken(IntPtr ExistingTokenHandle, int
   SECURITY_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL, out IntPtr DuplicateTokenHandle);

VB .NET Signature:

Declare Function DuplicateToken Lib "advapi32.dll" (ExistingTokenHandle As IntPtr, _
   SECURITY_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL As Int16, ByRef DuplicateTokenHandle As IntPtr) _
   As Boolean

VB .NET User-Defined Types:

Public Enum SecurityImpersonationLevel As Integer
     'The server process cannot obtain identification information about the client,
     'and it cannot impersonate the client. It is defined with no value given, and thus,
     'by ANSI C rules, defaults to a value of zero.
     SecurityAnonymous = 0

     'The server process can obtain information about the client, such as security identifiers and privileges,
     'but it cannot impersonate the client. This is useful for servers that export their own objects,
     'for example, database products that export tables and views.
     'Using the retrieved client-security information, the server can make access-validation decisions without
     'being able to use other services that are using the client's security context.
     SecurityIdentification = 1

     'The server process can impersonate the client's security context on its local system.
     'The server cannot impersonate the client on remote systems.
     SecurityImpersonation = 2

     'The server process can impersonate the client's security context on remote systems.
     'NOTE: Windows NT:  This impersonation level is not supported.
     SecurityDelegation = 3
End Enum
