Class UnixNumericGroupPrincipal

java.lang.Object
  extended by com.sun.security.auth.UnixNumericGroupPrincipal
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Principal

public class UnixNumericGroupPrincipal
extends Object
implements Principal, Serializable

This class implements the Principal interface and represents a user's Unix group identification number (GID).

Principals such as this UnixNumericGroupPrincipal 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.

Parameters:
name - the user's group identification number (GID) for this user represented as a long.

primaryGroup - true if the specified GID represents the primary group to which this user belongs.
