Lab description

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a hosted Kubernetes offering from AWS. EKS manages the control plane for you, and its infrastructure is highly available and scalable by default. Amazon EKS integrates with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), which allows you to use familiar permission controls to restrict an EKS cluster's access to your AWS account.

Learning the best practices of using AWS IAM with Amazon EKS will benefit anyone planning to use EKS in production AWS environments.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to modify a solution in a production-like AWS environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.
