User Guide (API Version 2010-05-15)


The AWS::EMR::SecurityConfiguration resource creates a security configuration that is stored in the Amazon EMR web service. You can specify the security configuration when creating a cluster. For more information, see Specifying Amazon EMR Encryption Options Using a Security Configuration in the Amazon EMR Release Guide.


To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "Type" : "AWS::EMR::SecurityConfiguration", "Properties" : { "Name" : String, "SecurityConfiguration" : String } }


Type: "AWS::EMR::SecurityConfiguration" Properties: Name: String SecurityConfiguration: String


For more information about each property, including constraints and valid values, see CreateSecurityConfiguration in the Amazon EMR API Reference.


The name of the security configuration. For a list of valid parameters for encryption settings, see AWS CLI Security Configuration JSON Reference in the Amazon EMR Release Guide.
