users like nova and neutron usually belong to a specific role.

Service accounts can be used to login horizon

Status in OpenStack Security Notes:
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.
