Class NTSidUserPrincipal

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Principal

    public class NTSidUserPrincipal
    extends NTSid
    This class extends NTSid and represents a Windows NT user's SID.

    Principals such as this NTSidUserPrincipal may be associated with a particular Subject to augment that Subject with an additional identity. Refer to the Subject class for more information on how to achieve this. Authorization decisions can then be based upon the Principals associated with a Subject.
