This course looks at one of the key Security services within AWS, Identity & Access Management, commonly referred to IAM.
This service manages identities and their permissions that are able to access your AWS resources and so understanding how this service works and what you can do with it will help you to maintain a secure AWS environment. IAM is an important step in ensuring your resources are secure.
What is Identity & Access Management? This lecture will explain what IAM means and why it's necessary to implement and maintain control of this service.

Multi-Factor Authentication: This lecture will explain what MFA is and the best practices
Identity Federation: This lecture will explain how external identities (users who do not have IAM user accounts) can access your AWS resources through the use of identity providers
IAM Features: This lecture will focus on the information contained within IAM Account settings, the credential report and also how IAM integrates with KMS
Setup and configure users, groups and roles to control which identities have authorization to access specific AWS resources
