I'm using Oracle's JAAS implementation (JAZN) with LDAP. request.getRemoteUser() and request.getUserPrincipal().getName() both return a string in the format "realm/uid". Since a a Subject can have several Principals, is it possible to get to other Principals of the Subject associated with the Principal returned by request? If it is possible, how do I distinguish one Principal from another and how do I get a particular Principal (e.g. the "SSN" or "employeenumber"). Does this make sense?
