[17/30] #30DaysOfAWS Today, AWS IAM Identity Center.
AWS IAM Identity Center (successor to AWS Single Sign-On) is a cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) service that helps you centrally manage and control access to your AWS resources.
Single sign-on (SSO) to AWS accounts and applications - IAM Identity Center allows your workforce users to sign in to all their AWS accounts and applications with a single set of credentials. It reduces risk of password fatigue and increases productivity.
Centralized user management - IAM Identity Center allows you to create, manage, and delete users and groups centrally. This makes it easier to keep track of your users and their permissions.
Role-based access control (RBAC) - IAM Identity Center supports RBAC, which allows you to grant users permissions to specific AWS resources. This helps you to secure your AWS environment and prevent unauthorized access.
Fine-grained access control - IAM Identity Center allows you to define fine-grained access control policies for your AWS resources. This helps you to ensure that users only have access to the resources that they need.
Auditing and reporting - IAM Identity Center provides auditing and reporting capabilities that help you to track user activity and identify potential security risks.
IAM Identity Center can be used by organizations of all sizes. It is a scalable and cost-effective solution that can help you to improve the security and efficiency of your AWS environment.
