Mask the username/password in a script
Posted on 2004-04-28
I wrote a perl script which connects to another unix system to do some jobs.
The script will be executed by another operator. The operator has the access of the first system but he doesn't have access on the 2nd unix.
Right now, I put the username & password of the 2nd unix system in the script. This will disclose the account to the user who doesn't have right.
What can i do so that the operator can execute the script without knowing the username & password of the system?
