AWS IAM (Identity and Access Management)

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) provides businesses with access control that is fine-grained. You can control and specify access, through permissions, to AWS resources and services. In order to grant IAM roles with permissions, a business can attach the actionable resources, the actions that can be executed, and a policy that describes the access type. With the help of IAM roles, organizations can delegate access to AWS services as well as users to function in their AWS accounts. An AWS request can be made in the IAM role account by obtaining temporary security credentials through an assumption of role by users from AWS services or your identity provider.
As the requirements of a business evolve, correct permissions that are fine-grained can be granted through the continuous cycle of achieving the least privilege. You can also establish permissions guardrails through the use of SCPs (service control policies). You can restrict permissions with confidence throughout your AWS organization with an IAM access advisor, whether you have existing SCPs or if you are just getting started with them. You can also use the ABAC (attribute-based access control) authorization strategy to establish fine-grained permissions on the basis of team name, job role, department, and other such user attributes. This allows you to diminish the number of required distinct permissions to create controls that are fine-grained within your AWS account.
Here are some of the benefits of AWS Identity and Access Management:

Benefits of AWS Identity and Access Management

  • Identity federation
  • Control for AWS accounts
  • Provision of shared access to AWS accounts
  • Authorization
  • Authentication
