I don't know how nova's keypair management works but i assume we are
talking about keys for ssh-ing into new virtual machines rather than
keys for authentication against nova.
Keystone's v3 api has credentials storage (see
https://github.com/openstack/identity-api/blob/master/openstack-identity-api/src/markdown/identity-api-v3.md ), is this sufficient on behalf of keystone? There is some support in the current master of keystoneclient for working with these credentials.
Otherwise would the upcoming barbican be a more appropriate place?
If i've got this wrong and we are using these keys to actually
authenticate against nova then if someone can point me to the code i'll
see how hard it is to transfer to keystone.
