[Openstack-security] [Bug 1464750] Re: Service accounts can be used to login horizon

As Horizon, we can potentially check a role of log-in user. service
users like nova and neutron usually belong to a specific role.

Bug description:
  This is not a bug and may / may not be a security issue ... but it
  appears that the service account created in keystone are of the same
  privileges level as any other admin accounts created through keystone
  and I don't like that.

  Would it be possible to implement something that would distinguish
  user accounts from service accounts?  Is there a way to isolate some
  service accounts from the remaining of the openstack APIs?

  One kick example on this is that any service accounts have admin
  privileges on all the other services .   At this point, I'm trying to
  figure out why are we creating a distinct service account for each
  service if nothing isolate them.


  glance account can spawn a VM
  cinder account can delete an image
  heat account can delete a volume
  nova account can create an image

  All of these service accounts have access to the horizon dashboard.  One small hack could be to prevent those accounts from logging in Horizon.
