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.
