AWS Identity and Access Management

Amazon CloudFront integrates with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), a service that lets your organization do the following:

  • Create users and groups under your organization's AWS account

  • Easily share your AWS account resources among the users in the account

  • Assign unique security credentials to each user

  • Granularly control user access to services and resources

For example, you can use IAM with CloudFront to control which users in your AWS account can create a new distribution or update cache behavior settings.

For general information about IAM, see the following:
