Document URL: 

Section Number and Name: 
Section, “Setting Up your Environment for a Secure Geo-replication Slave”

Describe the issue: 
Need to execute an extra step in all the nodes of the master cluster after step7, which instructs to change the permissions to secret.pem and secret.pem.pub to 600 and 644 respectively.

If we do not execute the above mentioned step, then the geo-rep session that will be created will be 'Faulty' with the message  "WARNING: UNPROTECTED PRIVATE KEY FILE!"  in the logs. That is because we give the permissions 770 to _all_ the files under /var/lib/glusterd/geo-replication, and that includes the private and public keys.
