Identity and Access Management for this Amazon Product or Service

Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) is an Amazon Web Services (Amazon) service that helps an administrator securely control access to Amazon resources. IAM administrators control who can be authenticated (signed in) and authorized (have permissions) to use resources in Amazon services. IAM is an Amazon service that you can use with no additional charge.

To use this Amazon product or service to access Amazon, you need an Amazon account and Amazon credentials. To increase the security of your Amazon account, we recommend that you use an IAM user to provide access credentials instead of using your Amazon account credentials.

For details about working with IAM, see Amazon Identity and Access Management.

For an overview of IAM users and why they are important for the security of your account, see Amazon Security Credentials in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.

This Amazon product or service follows the shared responsibility model through the specific Amazon Web Services (Amazon) services it supports. For Amazon service security information, see the Amazon service security documentation page and Amazon services that are in scope of Amazon compliance efforts by compliance program.
