GitHub user dfjdejulio opened a pull request:


    Added "jaas:whoami" command, to inspect JAAS principals.

    This is my attempt at resolving issue [KARAF-3270](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-3270).
    It adds a "jaas:whoami" command.  By default, it returns the names all the principals
of type "UserPrincipal".  Typically there will be only one and it will be the logged-in user
(eg. "karaf").  If you give it "-g" or "-r", it will list the groups or roles instead (so
by default, "whoami -r" would return vewer, manager, admin, systembundles).  If you give it
"-a", it'll report on every JAAS Principal in the current Subject, even if it's of a type
that doesn't have meaning to Karaf itself (eg. a Kerberos principal), along with the class
of each principal.
    (I needed it to debug the arguably complex authn/authz we're trying to set up right now
at Carnegie Mellon.)
