file access permissions

Hi everybody,

following is the scenario;

OS HP UX 11.23

two users:
# id bodi
uid=109(bodi) gid=20(users) groups=1(other),2(bin),3(sys),106(oinstall)
# id ossmed
uid=121(ossmed) gid=20(users)

directory name /home/mydir
directory permissions drwxrwxrwx

requirement: to have read,execute permissions to group users on all the new created/creating files in this dir.

files are created by a encrypted tool from "bodi" user into this directory with read,write permissions to owner only.

what i tried:

Changed the umask in .profile to 027 of "bodi" user. but dos'nt help because the tool that creates the files don't use the .profile of user.

can't change the default umask in /etc/default/security to other the 077

tried to put acl on dir and don't help with new created files.

any solution?, other then writing and scheduling a script that runs and changes the permission of files.
