Identity Management

  • Andrey Markelov


The Keystone or OpenStack Identity service acts as a catalog of all OpenStack services and provides the ability for authenticating and managing user accounts and role information for the cloud environment. If you are familiar with the Microsoft Windows Server environment, you can think of Keystone as the “Active Directory analog” for your OpenStack cloud. Usually Keystone is the first component to be installed when starting an OpenStack cloud. Keystone supports multiple forms of authentication, including login name and password, token-based credentials, and REST API log ins.
