Hi, I Followed the guide described here: (

to build an allinone installation. It seems to work, but when I try to access from a remote computer via virt-manager, keystone lets me access every VM without authentication, it never asks me for an user or password. Did I misconfigured keystone? Thank you!

If you can access VMs using virt-manager from a remote computer, and you don't have some other security mechanism setup to bypass the password (eg SSH keys setup for passwordless login), you should probably firewall that off quickly :)

Virt-manager is part of the hypervisor, rather than part of OpenStack. My recommendation is to read the "Overview of VNC Proxy" section of the official documentation:

which explains how the VNC console is accessed via a secure mechanism using tokens.
