IndyAWS Monthly Meetup: AWS IAM Access and Elevation

IndyAWS Meetup:AWS IAM Access and Elevation

This month, IndyAWS' guest speaker is Kenneth Winner (Trek10) on AWS IAM Access and Elevation

Talk Abstract:

Securing AWS accounts isn’t always easy. A well-established best practice for IAM is to centralize your users in either a special “IAM only” AWS account or through some user store and SSO service outside of AWS (i.e. Active Directory or Okta) and then use cross-account roles with various access levels to access your organization’s AWS accounts. However, this does not cover defining who has access to what roles and in what accounts/organizations.

Our solution is temporary elevation. Instead of asking for access every day for weeks they can request the max time but if it’s only for a day or a few hours then that is what they get.
