Speed Up Development Times Using S3 and IAM with Pinterest

In this video, learn how Pinterest uses Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to create a FGAC system to speed up development times.

Looking to enable its users while deploying analytic toolings, Pinterest identified that those users should have permission in order to access the data. Pinterest collaborated with AWS to create a fine grain access control system to ensure the correct user permissions were in place which, in return, improved development time for the internal users.
We collaborated with AWS, with their S3 and IAM teams to create a fine-grained access control system that's integrated with AWS's STS token system and our LDAP service so that we can get the permissions for the jobs from the user's permissions."
