      Description

        A native GSS-API library named `sspi_bridge.dll` has been added to the JDK on the Windows platform. The library is client-side only and uses the default credentials. It will be loaded when the `sun.security.jgss.native` system property is set to "true". A user can still load a third-party native GSS-API library by setting the `sun.security.jgss.lib` system property to the appropriate path.

        Native GSS automatically uses cached credentials from operating systems, thus the `javax.security.auth.useSubjectCredsOnly` system property should be set to false.

        `com.sun.security.auth.module.Krb5LoginModule` does not call native JGSS. Avoid using `com.sun.security.auth.module.Krb5LoginModule` from JAAS config.
