Course Description

This course explores AWS (Amazon Web Services) IAM (Identity and Access Management) configurations by examining how to control access to AWS cloud resources using IAM roles and policies. You will learn how to use MFA (multifactor authentication), the Directory Services tool, and Amazon Cognito to control user authentication. Learners see how IAM policies differ from service control policies, and learn how to configure IAM policies and IAM roles. You will learn how to use the IAM policy simulator to test resource access, how MFA enhances user sign-in security, and how to enable MFA for an IAM user account. Next, learners examine options related to working with a Directory Service in AWS and how to join an EC2 instance (virtual server) to an AWS Directory Service. Finally, you will learn how to add users and groups to AWS Managed AD (Active Directory), and how to control user access with Amazon Cognito. This course can be used in preparation for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect-Professional SAP-C01 certification exam.
