Mastering AWS IAM for Amazon S3

Be aware of the AWS security mechanisms to use Amazon S3 effectively

To use Amazon S3 effectively, you need to be aware of the security mechanisms provided by AWS to control your S3 resources. This e-book will help you master these mechanisms.

In this e-book, we discuss the three access control tools provided by AWS to manage your S3 resources:

  • IAM policies
  • bucket policies
  • ACL policies

After that, we take a deeper look at writing policies in AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and finally cover the authentication and identity in AWS IAM.

By mixing theoretical and practical knowledge you will learn how to write policies yourself and how to effectively manage the security of your account, resources, and applications.
