Class NTSidDomainPrincipal

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Principal

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

An NT user only has a domain SID if in fact they are logged into an NT domain. If the user is logged into a workgroup or just a standalone configuration, they will NOT have a domain SID.

Principals such as this NTSidDomainPrincipal 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.
