condor_store_cred securely - stash a password
condor_store_credadd[ -c | -u username] [-p password] [-n machinename] [-f
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 condor_store_cred:
- 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
- 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 variable.
- 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 are stashed in a persistent manner; they are maintained across system
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.
- For Unix machines only, generates a pool password file
named filenamethat may be used with the PASSWORD authentication
- Displays a brief summary of command options.
- Apply the command on the given machine.
- Stores password, rather than prompting the user to enter a
- Specify the user name.
condor_store_credwill exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it
will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
