Bug Description

/etc/glance/glance-regsitry.conf may contain database credentials (sql_connection). /etc/glance/glance-api.conf may contain credentials for various storage backends (swift, s3). It appears both may also contain keystone tokens. All of these files are installed world-readable (0644)

When verbose logging is enabled (it is by default), these settings are logged in corresponding log files in /var/log/glance on service startup. These logfiles are also created readable by anyone.
