Introduction to AWS IAM – Identity and Access Management on AWS

Introduction to AWS IAM – Identity and Access Management on AWS


Amazon Identity
and Access Management, or IAM, allows you
to manage access to compute, storage, database
and application services in the AWS cloud. IAM uses Access Control Concepts
you already be familiar with, such as users, groups and permissions, which get applied
to individual API calls. So you can specify permissions to control which users
can access specific services, the kinds of actions
they can perform, and which resources are available, ranging from virtual machines, database instances, and even the ability to filter
database query results. For instance, you can determine,
which users have MFA access to specific Amazon EC2 resources and can perform specific actions
on those resources, such as, who can launch
an Amazon EC2 instance. And with AWS cloud trail you can keep logs
of these kinds of activities. So it’s easier to keep tabs
on API activity and stay compliant. You can also integrate
your existing identity system, such as Microsoft Active Directory, using standards-based
federation technologies, so that IT admins and developers
can administer AWS without needing
additional credentials, by using one central
identity management system. You can spend less time and effort administering yet another environment while ensuring
everyone gets what they need. We know that security
is very important for Amazon web services customers. So we have always focused
on security as a top priority. In addition to physical
security certification to providing fine-grained access
and data locality controls, AWS provides
the infrastructure building blocks so you can build sophisticated,
secure applications, which meet the regulatory
and compliance standards your business requires,
from ITAR to HIPAA. IAM lets developers
focus on the features and functionality
of their applications, while it does the heavy lifting
on the security side of things. For instance, IAM can
automatically rotate access keys on your virtual machine instances, ensuring that only
trusted applications and users have appropriate access
at any given time. There’s no additional charge for IAM
and getting started is easy. Just click the Getting Started tab.
