[Condor-users] Condor WS BirdBath security questions


In order to use the Condor WS (BirdBath), it must be configured that
Condor allows anonymous users to submit jobs. This of course to my
departments SysAdmin seems very insecure. The problem occurs during the
creation of a cluster for submission of a job and then when u submit a
job, you only need a username (which doesnt map to an allowed user of
the pool?), letsthrashtheharddrive.sh springs to mind. 

Is there anyway to work around this and force Condor to authenicate
users through the webservices interface ? 
Are there any plans to implement better security functionality in
BirdBath anytime soon? 
I ve seen a paper integrating GridSAM and Condor and was wondering if
anyone knew about the security model used in this? Is GridSAM submitting
via the Condor DRM anonymously or can this be setup differently?



PS The paper btw is Condor BirdBath - Web Service Interfaces to Condor -
