       condor_store_cred - securely stash user’s password


       condor_store_cred [ -help ]

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

       condor_store_cred delete [ -c | -u username ] [ -n machinename ]

       condor_store_cred query [ -c | -u username ] [ -n machinename ]


       On a Windows  machine,  condor_store_cred  stores  the  password  of  a
       user/domain  pair  securely  in the Windows registry. Using this stored
       password, Condor is able to run jobs with the user ID of the submitting
       user.  In addition, Condor uses this password to acquire the submitting
       user’s credentials when writing output or log files.  The  password  is
       stored  in  the same manner as the system does when setting or changing
       account passwords. When condor_store_cred is invoked, it  contacts  the
       condor_schedd daemon to carry out the requested operations on behalf of
       the user. This is necessary since registry keys are accessible only  by
       the Windows SYSTEM account, not by administrators or other users.

       On  a  Unix  machine,  condor_store_cred  is  used  to  manage the pool
       password,     placed     in     a     file     specified     by     the
       SEC_PASSWORD_FILEconfiguration   variable,  and  for  use  in  password
       authentication among Condor daemons.

       The password is stashed in a persistent manner; it is maintained across
       system reboots.

       The  add  argument  stores  the current user’s 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

       The delete deletes the current password, if it exists.

       The query reports whether the password is stored or not.



          Apply the option to the pool password.

       -f filename

          For  Unix  machines  only,  generates  a  pool  password  file named
          filename that 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 given password, rather than prompting.

       -u username

          Specify the user name.

Exit Status

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