Access and Security in Horizon

The Access and Security guide explains how to access and secure instances.


OpenStack Horizon has a menu that allows you to configure elements relating to access to your instances and other services. For example, you can configure security groups to filter incoming and outgoing connections from your instances, or download the OpenRC file which contains the credentials you need to use the OpenStack API.



There are three tabs in this section:

  • Security Groups lets you manage security rules and access to instances, limiting access to certain ports for exmple.
