Integrating Secrets Manager with AWS IoT Greengrass - AWS Secrets Manager

Integrating Secrets Manager with AWS IoT Greengrass

AWS IoT Greengrass lets you authenticate with services and applications from Greengrass devices without hard-coding passwords, tokens, or other secrets.

You can use AWS Secrets Manager to securely store and manage your secrets in the cloud. AWS IoT Greengrass extends Secrets Manager to Greengrass core devices, so your connectors and Lambda functions can use local secrets to interact with services and applications. For example, the Twilio Notifications connector uses a locally stored authentication token.

To integrate a secret into a Greengrass group, you create a group resource that references the Secrets Manager secret. This secret resource references the cloud secret by using the associated ARN. To learn how to create, manage, and use secret resources, see Working with Secret Resources in the AWS IoT Developer Guide.

To deploy secrets to the AWS IoT Greengrass Core, see Deploy secrets to the AWS IoT Greengrass core.
