Keystone Installation Tutorial

The OpenStack system consists of several key services that are separately installed. These services work together depending on your cloud needs and include the Compute, Identity, Networking, Image, Block Storage, Object Storage, Telemetry, Orchestration, and Database services. You can install any of these projects separately and configure them stand-alone or as connected entities.

This section describes how to install and configure the OpenStack Identity service, code-named keystone, on the controller node. For scalability purposes, this configuration deploys Fernet tokens and the Apache HTTP server to handle requests.
