       condor_store_cred securely stash	a 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 ]

       condor_store_cred  stores  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	 PASS-
	  WORD	authentication	method.	 condor_store_cred using the -c	option
	  deals	with the password for the  implied   condor_pool@$(UID_DOMAIN)
	  user name.

	  On  a	 Unix machine, condor_store_cred with the -f option is used to
	  set the pool password, as needed when	used with  the	 PASSWORD  au-
	  thentication 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_owner functionality, 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	 pass-
	  word 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  add	 argument 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 pass-

       The delete argument deletes the current password, if it exists.

       The query reports whether the password is stored	or not.


	  Operations  refer to the pool	password, as used in the  PASSWORD au-
	  thentication method.

       -f filename

	  For Unix machines only, generates a pool password file  named	 file-
	  name 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  password  ,  rather than prompting the user to enter a pass-

       -u username

	  Specify the user name.

Exit Status
       condor_store_cred will exit with	a status value of 0 (zero)  upon  suc-
       cess, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
