You can also use IAM roles to manage access to your AWS Cloud resources from applications, Amazon EC2 instances, and AWS services. This tech talk will show you how to use roles in your AWS accounts effectively by walking through common use cases, such as granting roles access to Amazon S3 buckets. You will learn about the differences between trust policies and permissions policies, and how to use roles to manage access for users from your corporate directory.

Learning Objectives:
  • Use IAM roles to manage access to your AWS Cloud resources from applications, Amazon EC2 instances, and AWS services
  • Using temporary security credentials through IAM roles
  • Learn about the differences between trust policies and permissions policies.
