There is already a blueprint with a proposed patch here for Ironic to do 
the querying: 

I think, for terms of credential storage (and, for that matter, metrics 
gathering as I noted in that blueprint), it's very useful to have things 
pluggable. Ironic, in particular, has many different use cases: bare 
metal private cloud, bare metal public cloud, and triple-o. I could 
easily see all three being different enough to call for different forms 
of credential storage.
