Which is the common technique for enabling external authentication in OpenStack? Basically i want to know which different techniques are used by companies for authenticating openstack other than traditional keystone authentication. (Is it OpenID connect, SAML based techniques like shibboleth, mellon?) Also which is the right way to have gmail based authentication with keystone.

Although LDAP integration with OpenStack may used for Authentication.Not pretty much sure of oAuth.

@Praveen N thanks for your answer. I guess i need to modify my question a little. But i am specifically looking for external methods. Maybe for gmail or facebook based authentication. I want to know if companies are more inclined towards using OpenID connect or SAML techniques.
