We have been using xen virtualization for some time now on our gLite certification test bed, and have stumbled upon an issue which requires some clever tricks.

We have X number of users for our test bed, and for the moment we have kept their SSH keys in the /root/.ssh/authorized_keys file on the images. Now we would like to restrict access to the user who deployed the virtual machine. I am wondering if it's possible to pass some kind of shell script or another username parameter in the xen configuration file to execute when the image boots up.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help!
