---------------------------------------

             Summary: pull out logic to determine principal, allow kdiag to get at it directly
                 Key: HADOOP-12742
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12742
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 2.8.0
            Reporter: Steve Loughran


The process for determining the principal name on a login is convoluted, and can behave differently
across JVMs. If it's playing up, it's hard to work out what is up.

I propose
# pull out the code to something accessible by kdiag
# have it return the principal, and a string describing the origin of the principal (env var,
canonical principal, JVM introspection). This can be logged and validated in KDiag, logged
@ debug and used in UGI
