Keystone v3 provides the /v3/credentials APIs to manage credentials; however it is not clear to me how the credentials may be used in services such as nova, glance, etc. For example, if I had created an ec2 type credential using the POST /v3/credentials API, how might the created credential be used in (say) nova or some other service later? I couldn't seem to find code that actually makes use of the v3 credentials. If it's not used by any service, how is it supposed to be used and by what applications?
