I'm on the very early stages of developing an app for android to manage
openstack services and would like to get the user credentials/tokens on
keystone to get data and execute commands via the horizon URL. I'm using
IceHouse on Ubuntu 14.04.

In my particular use case I have keystone running on my internal
server "*http://localhost:5000/v3/auth/tokens
<http://localhost:5000/v3/auth/tokens>*" which would allow me to use my app
fine with JSON to get information from other services and execute commands
however I'd have to be on the same network as my server for it to work.

On the other hand I have my horizon URL published externally on the
internet at the address "*https://openstack.domain.com/horizon
<https://openstack.domain.com/horizon>*" which is available from anywhere
and gives me access to my OpenStack services fine via browser on a desktop.
I'd like to do the same on android, would it be possible? Is there a way
for my app to send JSON requests to horizon at
<https://openstack.domain.com/horizon>* and get the authentication tokens
from keystone indirectly?

I should mention I'm not a very experienced developer and any help would be
amazing! Thanks
