Security - IoT Channel Using Amazon Pinpoint


When you build systems on AWS infrastructure, security responsibilities are shared between you and AWS. This shared model can reduce your operational burden as AWS operates, manages, and controls the components from the host operating system and virtualization layer down to the physical security of the facilities in which the services operate.

IAM Role and Permission

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles enable customers to assign granular access policies and permissions to services and users on the AWS Cloud. This solution creates an IAM role that grants the solution’s AWS Lambda function access to AWS IoTCore. This role is necessary to allow the function to publish messages to the MQTT topic. The solution also creates an IAM permission that allows Amazon Pinpoint to execute the Lambda function.
