Chapter 1. Keystone authentication and the Ceph Object Gateway

Organizations using OpenStack Keystone to authenticate users can integrate Keystone with the Ceph Object Gateway. The Ceph Object Gateway enables the gateway to accept a Keystone token, authenticate the user and create a corresponding Ceph Object Gateway user. When Keystone validates a token, the gateway considers the user authenticated.

Benefits

  • Managing users with Keystone
  • Automatic User Creation in the Ceph Object Gateway
  • The Ceph Object Gateway will query Keystone periodically for a list of revoked tokens.
