This episode of the Datanauts examines Identity and Access Management (IAM) in the context of AWS. A proper IAM framework is essential to ensure that the right people access the right resources in AWS, but setting up and managing policies can be…daunting.
The Datanauts are joined by Cole Morrison, a lead engineer at Fieldboom, who wrote a detailed series of posts on how to get a handle on IAM in AWS. They talk about why you want IAM in the first place, how it works, and then drill into setting up policies for AWS infrastructure.
