Just found it on the pinvoke.net.

Alternative Managed 1 API: Available in .Net 2.0:

The Win32 API function LookupAccountSid() is used to find 3 the name that corresponds to a SID.

LookupAccountSid() has 2 the following signature:

BOOL LookupAccountSid(LPCTSTR lpSystemName, PSID Sid,LPTSTR Name, LPDWORD cbName,
                       LPTSTR ReferencedDomainName, LPDWORD cbReferencedDomainName,
                       PSID_NAME_USE peUse);


Here's the 1 P/Invoke reference (with sample code): http://www.pinvoke.net/default.aspx/advapi32.LookupAccountSid

[DllImport("advapi32.dll", CharSet=CharSet.Auto, SetLastError = true)]
static extern bool LookupAccountSid (
  string lpSystemName,
  [MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPArray)] byte[] Sid,
  StringBuilder lpName,
  ref uint cchName,
  StringBuilder ReferencedDomainName,
  ref uint cchReferencedDomainName,
  out SID_NAME_USE peUse);
