Subject: [openstack-dev] Get keystone auth token via Horizon URL

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"; 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 ""; 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 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
