AWS Identity and Access Management - AWS WAF, AWS Firewall Manager, and AWS Shield Advanced

AWS Identity and Access Management

Shield 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

  • Share your AWS account resources with users in the account

  • Assign unique security credentials to each user

  • Control user access to services and resources

For example, you can use IAM with Shield to control which users in your AWS account can create a new web ACL.

For general information about IAM, see the following documentation:
