As usual, 'insufficient data'. created 'by whom', and 'how'?
some starting points:
a) 'man umask'.
b) 'man 2 chmod',
c) see also how the 'setuid' bit works on directories
note if '~/secret' is mode 700, no one other than the owner can list the
files in it (or any subdirectory), nor can they use it in a path name.
Is this sufficient? If not, exactly _what_ are you trying to accomplish?
