Signing Amazon Route 53 API Requests

Requests must be signed using an access key ID and a secret access key. We strongly recommend that you do not use your AWS account credentials for everyday work with Route 53. You can use the credentials for an IAM user or you can use AWS STS to generate temporary security credentials.

To sign your API requests, we recommend that you use AWS Signature Version 4. For more information, see Signature Version 4 Signing Process in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.
