AWS Resource Access Manager (AWS RAM) is now authorized as FedRAMP Moderate in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), and US West (Oregon) and as FedRAMP High in AWS GovCloud (US-West) and AWS GovCloud (US-East).
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a US government-wide program that delivers a standard approach to the security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP uses the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800 series and requires cloud service providers to receive an independent security assessment conducted by a third-party assessment organization (3PAO) to ensure that authorizations are compliant with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).
AWS RAM helps you securely share your AWS resources across AWS accounts or within your organization or organizational units (OUs) in AWS Organizations, or with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles and IAM users for supported resource types.
