       condor_store_cred securely - stash a password


       condor_store_cred [-help]

       condor_store_credadd[ -c | -u username] [-p password] [-n machinename] [-f filename]

       condor_store_creddelete[ -c | -u username] [-n machinename]

       condor_store_credquery[ -c | -u username] [-n machinename]


       condor_store_credstores  passwords  in  a  secure  manner.  There are two separate uses of

          1. A shared pool password is needed in order to implement the  PASSWORD  authentication
          method.  condor_store_cred  using  the -coption deals with the password for the implied
          condor_pool@$(UID_DOMAIN) user name.

          On a Unix machine, condor_store_cred  with  the  -foption  is  used  to  set  the  pool
          password,  as  needed  when  used  with  the   PASSWORD authentication method. The pool
          password is  placed  in  a  file  specified  by  the   SEC_PASSWORD_FILE  configuration

          2.  In  order to submit a job from a Windows platform machine, or to execute a job on a
          Windows platform machine  utilizing  the  run_as_ownerfunctionality,  condor_store_cred
          stores  the password of a user/domain pair securely in the Windows registry. Using this
          stored password, HTCondor may act on behalf of the submitting  user  to  access  files,
          such  as  writing output or log files. HTCondor is able to run jobs with the user ID of
          the submitting user. The password is stored in the same manner as the system does  when
          setting or changing account passwords.

       Passwords are stashed in a persistent manner; they are maintained across system reboots.

       The  addargument on the Windows platform stores the password securely in the registry. The
       user is prompted to enter the password twice for  confirmation,  and  characters  are  not
       echoed.  If  there  is already a password stashed, the old password will be overwritten by
       the new password.

       The deleteargument deletes the current password, if it exists.

       The queryreports whether the password is stored or not.



          Operations refer to the pool password, as used in the  PASSWORD authentication method.

       -f filename

          For Unix machines only, generates a pool password file named filenamethat may  be  used
          with the  PASSWORD authentication method.


          Displays a brief summary of command options.

       -n machinename

          Apply the command on the given machine.

       -p password

          Stores password, rather than prompting the user to enter a password.

       -u username

          Specify the user name.

Exit Status

       condor_store_credwill  exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit
       with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
