Authentication and Authorization for Amazon MSK APIs - Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka

Authentication and Authorization for Amazon MSK APIs

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is an AWS service that helps an administrator securely control access to AWS resources. IAM administrators control who can be authenticated (signed in) and authorized (have permissions) to use Amazon MSK resources. IAM is an AWS service that you can use with no additional charge.

This page describes how you can use IAM to control who can perform Amazon MSK operations on your cluster. For information on how to control who can perform Apache Kafka operations on your cluster, see Authentication and Authorization for Apache Kafka APIs.
