Amazon Verified Permissions


[14/30] #30DaysOfAWS Today, Amazon Verified Permissions.

Amazon Verified Permissions (AVP) is a scalable, fine-grained permissions management and authorization service for custom applications built by you. It enables your developers to build secure applications faster by externalizing authorization and centralizing policy management and administration. It uses the Cedar policy language to define fine-grained permissions for application users. Once you have defined your permissions, you can use the AVP APIs to create, update, and delete them. You can also use the AVP APIs to authorize user actions.

Benefits of using Amazon Verified Permissions

  • Accelerate application development - AVP decouples authorization from business logic, so developers can focus on building applications without having to worry about the complexities of authorization.

  • Protect application resources - AVP helps you protect application resources by enforcing fine-grained access controls. This helps you implement the principle of least privilege, which reduces the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive data.

  • Simplify compliance audits - AVP provides automated analysis of your permissions, which can help you simplify compliance audits. This can save you time and money, and help you reduce the risk of regulatory violations.

  • Build applications aligned with Zero Trust principles - AVP helps you build applications that are aligned with Zero Trust principles. Zero Trust is a security model that assumes that no user or device is trusted by default. AVP can help you implement Zero Trust by enforcing fine-grained access controls and continuous real-time authorization decisions.
