Credentials + Access

  • Before you can interact with an AWS service, you need to set up access
  • Permissions correspond to IAM entities
  • You can get access in a bunch of ways...
  • Environment Variables
  • Credentials File (in a well-known location only on your computer)
  • Baked into your code (maybe a bad idea)
  • ... and a few others
  • Note: Some non-AWS-managed setups allow network connections. You're responsible for controlling that
