Actual results:

Comment 2 Adam Young 2012-05-01 10:57:46 EDT
This will put the admin server under /keystone/admin and the main Keystone server under /keystone/main.  I did this by hardlinking the keystone.py wsgi file into /var/www/cgi-bin,  but it probably should be under /usr/share from an RPM, and then either linked or copied into place.

[ayoung@ayoung apache-websocket]$ cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/keystone.conf
WSGIScriptAlias /keystone/main  /var/www/cgi-bin/keystone/main
WSGIScriptAlias /keystone/admin  /var/www/cgi-bin/keystone/admin

<Location "/keystone">
 Authtype none

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 4 Adam Young 2012-06-07 23:04:12 EDT
Fixed upstream with https://github.com/openstack/keystone/commit/8de61f8af43563b1d93291c868634810d9e42902

Additional work by Derrek Higgens has shown how we can front with HTTPD for SSL termination.
Comment 5 Jose Castro Leon 2012-06-13 05:57:54 EDT
In case that the CA certificate does not come with the distribution, python-keystoneclient fails due to validation of the CA.

Comment 6 Adam Young 2012-06-13 10:16:38 EDT
Jose,  I think that is the correct behavior.  CA and Certificate management are always part of dealing with SSL.

The CA should not come from the distribution,  it is up to the System administrator to distribute the CA
Comment 7 Jose Castro Leon 2012-06-13 10:25:12 EDT
python-keystoneclient uses python-httplib package. This packege gets the CA certificates from /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt as it is patched in the RPM from EPEL.

In our case, the CA is not in the bundle so and keystoneclient is taking the default one, so I saw several possibilities:

- specify as an extra parameter to keystoneclient
- append our CA chain in ca-bundle.crt
- modify httplib to point to our bundle

The latter two possibilities are non-friendly to maintain it, so this is why I was asking upstream to have an extra parameter when the CA was not in the bundle.
Comment 8 Adam Young 2013-03-01 17:00:58 EST
SSL support is in upstream, Fedora, and EPEL
