CVE-2020-17490: Prevent creating world readable private keys with the tls execution module.

CVE-2020-25592: Properly validate eauth credentials and tokens along with their ACLs.

Prior to this change eauth was not properly validated when calling Salt ssh via the salt-api.

Any value for 'eauth' or 'token' would allow a user to bypass authentication and make calls

to Salt ssh.
