My previous reply was missing "takeown" to take ownership. The correct
sequence of commands is:
icacls config /t /q /c /reset
icacls config /inheritance:d
takeown /f config
icacls config /remove:g "Authenticated Users"
icacls config /remove:g "Users"
icacls config /remove:g "Everyone"
icacls config /grant "%USERNAME%:rw"
This is equivalent to "chmod 600 config".
Here is a more portable version of taking ownership and setting
permissions to 600. It uses SIDs instead of literal names which may vary
icacls "id_rsa" /t /q /c /reset
icacls "id_rsa" /inheritance:d
takeown /f "id_rsa"
icacls "id_rsa" /remove *S-1-5-11
icacls "id_rsa" /remove *S-1-5-32-545
icacls "id_rsa" /remove *S-1-1-0
icacls "id_rsa" /grant "%USERNAME%:rw"
S-1-5-11 (Authenticated Users group)
S-1-5-32-545 (Users group)
S-1-1-0 (Everyone group)
