Using Apache authentication with keystone and horizon

I'm trying to get keystone to rely on apache to authenticate users.

I'm able to get apache to call keystone as a wsgi process and handle the authentication, but not actually have apache handle the authentication itself.

I've tried authtype basic with htpasswords, but it looks like horizon wants to pass all authentication credentials via json interaction. Is there something I need to configure to tell horizon to authenicate differently?

You need to associate a keystone role with your http user.

In general, you can hook keystone into your authentication system, such as LDAP, Active directory or use the sql backend.
