re: AWS access keys — 5 Tips To Safely Use Them. VIEW POST


I once had a painful lesson regarding this issue. When I was still learning AWS, I somehow (stupidly) committed my AWS credentials to github, then I forgot about it and left it for a year. Next year when I access my AWS account, to my surprise I've been charged almost 6k USD for doing nothing. Luckily after contacting their support, they kindly drop the amount seeing that I have enough evidence indicating my credentials have been compromised. So these steps you're suggesting, I've been doing some of it ever since.
