public interface Sid extends Serializable
This interface provides indirection between actual security objects (eg principals,
roles, groups etc) and what is stored inside an
Acl. This is because an
Acl will not store an entire security object, but only an abstraction of
it. This interface therefore provides a simple way to compare these abstracted security
identities with other security identities and actual security objects.
