To achieve certification as an AWS Cloud Practitioner, you need to be able to secure access to AWS services and resources. In this course, you'll explore what comprises the vital AWS security pillar of access management, focusing on Identity and Access Management (IAM). To start, you'll explore the use of IAM password and managed policies, roles, and groups and users. Next, because it is best practice to use only mediated access to services, you'll examine the use of bastion hosts and AppStream 2.0. You'll also investigate how to manage CLI access. Additionally, because many organizations opt to leverage their existing directory as an identity provider, you'll investigate the managed services, AWS Single Sign-On (SSO) and Cognito. This course is one of a collection that prepares learners for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner 2022 certification.
