The config file (/opt/SecureSpan/Gateway/node/default/etc/conf/node.properties) has global read permissions. The customer's security team wanted to restrict file access to a specific user and remove global read access.
Can they change the file's default permissions without affecting the functionality of the product?
On a high-level, there doesn't appear to be an issue with removing the global read permissions. If you ever have to do a Gateway restoration, you may be unable to connect to the Policy Manager because there are no read permissions on that file.
