Hello Jesse,

Thank you for the information. Would you be so kind as to provide a URL to the updated rcbops chef cookbooks for Quantum?

I finally found a set of web pages that has a working set of configuration files for the major OpenStack services " http://andymc-stack.co.uk/2013/07/apache2-mod_wsgi-openstack-pt-2-nova-api-os-compute-nova-api-ec2/ " by Andy Mc. I skipped ceilometer and have the rest of the services working except quantum with self-signed certificates on a Grizzly-3 OpenStack instance. Now I am stuck trying to figure out how to get quantum to accept self-signed certificates.

My goal is to harden my Grizzly-3 OpenStack instance using SSL and self-signed certificates. Later I will do the same for Havana bits and use real/valid certificates.

I struggled with getting this all to work correctly for a few weeks, then eventually gave up and opted instead to use an Apache reverse proxy to front-end the native services. I just found that using an Apache/wsgi configuration doesn't completely work. It would certainly help if this configuration was implemented into the Openstack testing regime to help all the services become first-class citizens as a wsgi process behind Apache.

I would suggest that you review the wsgi files and vhost templates in the rcbops chef cookbooks for each service. They include my updates to Andy's original blog items to make things work properly.

I found that while Andy's stuff appears to work, it becomes noticeable that it works in a read-only fashion. I managed to get keystone/nova confirmed to work properly, but glance just would not work - I could never upload any images and if caching/management was turned off in the glance service then downloading images didn't work either.

Good luck - if you do get a fully working config it'd be great to get feedback on the adjustments you had to make to get it working.
