I'm using JAAS to authenticate my app against an NT domain and would like to use my app to look through the different security groups associated with the user.

I create my LoginContext, then login, then looking through the returned Principal objects:

All's well so far but when the Principal is a group, the only data I can get is the SID reference (looks like "S-1-5-22-534") and not the name that is used to setup the group.

I'd like to find a way to resolve the SID to the actual name of the group.

Is that possible?
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
