  • What is AWS (STS)?

    AWS Security Token Service (STS) is a web service by Amazon Web Services that provides temporary, limited-privilege credentials for users and services. These credentials are dynamically generated, enhancing security by minimizing the use of long-term access keys.

  • How does AWS STS work?

    AWS STS works by issuing temporary credentials based on IAM roles and policies. Users or services request these credentials, and STS validates and provides them if authorized. Temporary credentials expire after a defined duration, reducing security risks associated with prolonged access.

  • How long can I access the course content?

    You will have the privilege of accessing the course content for a generous period of 90 days. Take advantage of this timeframe to maximize your learning experience and absorb the valuable insights offered by the course.

  • What is the difference between AWS IAM and STS?

    AWS IAM (Identity and Access Management) manages long-term access by controlling users, groups, and permissions. In contrast, AWS STS issues temporary credentials for short-term access, often used in scenarios like cross-account access or federated identity.
