I have query as we all know that we create API calls using the API Documentations for Getting the list of images or maybe even create a stack.So during these API calls we Execute the API's at the URI Endpoint. So if i execute the API at the Controller End .

Whether the API call communication between the Services kept secure?

If Answer is Yes.Please help me in getting to know more in depth about the secure Communication between various services of OpenStack.

If No. Can you please suggest any alternate way on how we can make the Communication between OpenStack services Secure.

You can use SSL certs to secure the communication and is documented on, To secure every component , you need to ensure that port 443 has to be used for every openstack service , Since the port 443 can be binded with a single ip per service and hence each service would demand its individual ip address to bind on port 443.
