024     * An <tt>Account</tt> is a convenience interface that extends both {@link AuthenticationInfo} and
025     * {@link AuthorizationInfo} and represents authentication and authorization for a <em>single account</em> in a
026     * <em>single Realm</em>.
027     * <p/>
028     * This interface can be useful when a Realm implementation finds it more convenient to use a single object to
029     * encapsulate both the authentication and authorization information used by both authc and authz operations.
030     * <p/>
031     * <b>Please Note</b>:  Since Shiro sometimes logs account operations, please ensure your Account's <code>toString()</code>
032     * implementation does <em>not</em> print out account credentials (password, etc), as these might be viewable to
033     * someone reading your logs.  This is good practice anyway, and account principals should rarely (if ever) be printed
034     * out for any reason.  If you're using Shiro's default implementations of this interface, they only ever print the
035     * account {@link #getPrincipals() principals}, so you do not need to do anything additional.
