Keystone, the OpenStack Identity Service¶
Keystone is an OpenStack service that provides API client authentication, service discovery, and distributed multi-tenant authorization by implementing OpenStack’s Identity API.
This documentation is useful for contributors looking to get involved in our community, developers writing applications on top of OpenStack, and operators administering their own OpenStack deployments.
This documentation is generated by the Sphinx toolkit and lives in the source tree. Also see the Getting Involved page for other ways to interact with the community.
