Description Michael Osipov 2019-08-02 11:37:29 UTC
We maintain a custom RealmBase#authenticate(GSSContext, boolean) implementation because the given one as a few shortcomings I'd like to address this in a PR:

* Move stripping right before #getPrincipal() to log a fully qualified GSS name
* Issue a warning instead of a debug if #getDelegCred() has failed. Justification: the context indicates that there is a credential and the developer has configured to store them, but this failed. A debug will be unnoticed in a production system. The admin should see this and take action.
* If storeCreds is requested, but the credentials arent't log this in debug for traceability.
