Discuss whether we should have two sets of credentials or one

Registered by justinsb on 2011-03-15

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Finalize Auth integration" for updated plans.

Currently the EC2 and OpenStack API both do login with two pieces of information, which many people see as a username & a password.

Currently the EC2 credentials and the OpenStack credentials are different.

While I think there should be one set of credentials, others think it is okay that the OpenStack and EC2 APIs should have different sets of credentials. As we rework authentication in Diablo, we have the opportunity to fix this.
