AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) Foundations Course Description

Welcome to the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) Fundamentals Certification Course.
In this course, we will explore AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).


IAM is a very important part of understanding how to safely and efficiently manage services and users within an AWS account.
As defined by AWS, “AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that helps you securely control access to AWS resources. You use IAM to control who is authenticated (signed in) and authorized (has permissions) to use resources. “

When creating an AWS account, the default account is the root account. This root account has full access to all AWS services and resources in the account. The root account should only be used to perform some account and service management tasks.
Each service deployed in an AWS account should only be accessible to users authorized to use the service.
This course will explore the following IAM components with hands-on exercises:

Allow multiple users to manage resources in an AWS account without having to share passwords.
Creation of granular permissions for AWS users. This means that each IAM user can be granted a different level of privilege for different resources in the AWS account.


Apply IAM credentials to applications, thus giving the application access to specific AWS services.
Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) for individual IAM users.
Enabling Login and Logging Logs for IAM Users Using AWS CloutTrail.
