Permissions option for registry_keys

I need to validate Permissions for a specific registry key.

If I enter on regedit and right-click on Permissions, I can check all users. It would be great if I can test if all users were set right with some inSpec feature.

    Not my 'idea' but OP has a fair request. Would be nice to have this reconsidered. DISA STIG contains requirements that that registry permissions be configured in specific ways.

    The current resources in InSpec do not appear to provide a mechanism for auditing permissions on registry keys.

    Can you explain a little more about your use case? When you say "all users" is that users local to the system or a query to an Exchange server or the like?
