The user and password is for the user you wish to pretend to be to
connect to the network resource...it has nothing to do with the reuse
account on the executing machine not the submitting user.

Since the users created by condor are not automatically members of a
domain you typically need to use the credentials of some user in the
domain you want. I strongly suggest a single user with access rights
for only what you absolutely need but the person could embed their own
username and password if they wanted at which point you may as well
just give up on any sort of security since you are sending passwords
for real users in the clear...
