Benefits of AWS Identity and Access Management
Set permission guardrails and fine-grained access
Manage workload and workforce identities across your AWS accounts
Use temporary security credentials and permission sets to access your AWS resources
Analyze access and validate IAM policies as you move toward least privilege
How it works
Apply fine-grained permissions and scale with attribute-based access control
Create granular permissions based on user attributes—such as department, job role, and team name—by using attribute-based access control.
Manage per-account access or scale access across AWS accounts and applications
Manage per-account identities with IAM or use IAM Identity Center to provide multi-account access and application assignments across AWS.
Establish organization-wide and preventative guardrails on AWS
Set, verify, and right-size permissions toward least privilege
Streamline permissions management and use cross-account findings as you set, verify, and refine policies on the journey toward least privilege.
