2. Elastic Beanstalk Explained > Identity and Access Management

Identity and Access Management

AWS Identity and Access Management allows you to create users with a limited set of rights to specific AWS resources.

We could, for example, create a user that can only access S3 services, and use it in a script that uploads new versions of an application to S3. We could even restrict it to have access to one specific bucket, the deploys bucket, and then we’ll be sure we won’t mess with other content stored in S3 by mistake. And if someone gets hold of the credentials of this user, he won’t be able to do as much harm as with the general AWS credentials: it won’t be possible to use them to terminate servers, launch new ones, etc.
