Identity and Access Management
In an internal workshop at Schibsted Tech Polska I gave a series of presentations about various aspects of using Amazon Web Services. Before we have published an overview of the services and global infrastructure.
In this second presentation I cover the main aspects of Amazon´s Identity And Access Management (IAM) Service. I start with discussing ways of accessing AWS through all the possible channels, such as AWS Management Console, Command Line Interface, Query API and SDKs.
Later I explain IAM identities (Users, Groups, Roles) and the use cases in which they may be applied.
I also touch advanced topics of the IAM Policies. I explain the IAM policies, their types, what they consist of and how they are evaluated.
In the last part of the video I discuss the Best Practices recommended by Amazon.
