User management and identity layer - Serverless Applications Lens

User management and identity layer

The user management and identity layer of your workload provides identity, authentication, and authorization for both external and internal customers of your workload’s interfaces.

With Amazon Cognito, you can easily add user sign-up, sign-in, and data synchronization to serverless applications. Amazon Cognito User Pools provide built-in sign-in screens and federation with Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). Amazon Cognito Federated Identities let you securely provide scoped access to AWS resources that are part of your serverless architecture.
