type Info

type Info interface {
	// GetName returns the name that uniquely identifies this user among all
	// other active users.
	GetName() string
	// GetUID returns a unique value for a particular user that will change
	// if the user is removed from the system and another user is added with
	// the same name.
	GetUID() string
	// GetGroups returns the names of the groups the user is a member of
	GetGroups() []string

	// GetExtra can contain any additional information that the authenticator
	// thought was interesting.  One example would be scopes on a token.
	// Keys in this map should be namespaced to the authenticator or
	// authenticator/authorizer pair making use of them.
	// For instance: "" instead of "foo"
	// This is a map[string][]string because it needs to be serializeable into
	// a for proper authorization
	// delegation flows
	// In order to faithfully round-trip through an impersonation flow, these keys
	// MUST be lowercase.
	GetExtra() map[string][]string
