With Security being one of the hottest topics within the Cloud industry today, Access and Key Management is often highlighted, questioned and misunderstood. 

This learning path on AWS Access & Key Management Security has been designed to help you understand how AWS implements and manages access to its resources from an Identity, key management, and best practice perspective.

It will focus on the Identity & Access Management Service (IAM) and all of its features and how they operate together to provide secure access management to your resources. You will also gain a deeper understanding of how these features operate from an authentication, authorization and access control stance.
