IAM Roles

  • IAM Roles let you delegate permissions to trusted AWS resources
  • Like users but for infrastructure elements
  • This can let you set up secure password-less access controls
  • IAM Policies can be attached to IAM Roles to control access
  • Attach IAM roles to your resources that need privileges (EC2 for now)
  • These services "automatically" get access based on policies
