Announcing AWS Identity & Access Management Support for CloudFront

Posted on: Mar 11, 2011

We are excited to announce the availability of AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) support for Amazon CloudFront. IAM enables you to manage permissions for multiple Users within your AWS Account. With IAM, you can specify which CloudFront actions a User or a group of Users can perform. The IAM policies you set also govern permissions for User actions in the AWS Management Console for creating and managing CloudFront distributions.

With IAM, each User has unique security credentials eliminating the need to share passwords or access keys, making it easy to enable or disable a User's access as appropriate. IAM offers you greater flexibility, control and security when using CloudFront. To learn more about using IAM with CloudFront, please visit the IAM detail page and refer to the CloudFront developer guide.
