A principal is an AWS account which is being allowed or denied access to a resource through an access control policy. The principal is a property of the Statement object, not directly the Amazon.Auth.AccessControlPolicy.Policy object.
The principal is A in the statement "A has permission to do B to C where D applies."
In an access control policy statement, you can set the principal to all authenticated AWS users through the Amazon.Auth.AccessControlPolicy.Principal.AllUsers member. This is useful when you don't want to restrict access based on the identity of the requester, but instead on other identifying characteristics such as the requester's IP address.
