#1351 new defect

spooled jobs files shouldn't be world-readable

Reported by: dlove Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 8.0.0e
Component: sge Version: 8.0.0a
Severity: minor Keywords: security


One reason that GSS security isn't usable currently is the credentials
being exposed in the "jobs" spool directory -- the job file is world
readable.  Other files in the spool should probably be treated similarly
(at least job_scripts).  It probably shouldn't be done more generally
for execd/qmaster files as it's useful for users to be able to read the
messages files and probably not a big security issue.

This is probably orthogonal to #109.

Punting for 8.0.0c, I'm not sure whether both the admin user and the job's
user need to be able to read the files. It may be better to encrypt the fields somehow.
