Create and manage IAM users, groups and policies to securely control access to AWS services and resources

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) enables you to securely control access to AWS services and resources for your users. The service is targeted at organizations with multiple users or systems that use AWS products such as Amazon EC2, Amazon RDS, and the AWS Management Console. With IAM, you can centrally manage users, security credentials such as access keys, and permissions that control which AWS resources users can access.
