Can you control the privileges of the AWS root account credentials for day to day interaction with AWS?
Just so, how do I protect my AWS root account?
There are five steps required to consider your root account secure.
- Delete your root access keys.
- Activate MFA on your root account.
- Create individual IAM users.
- Use groups to assign permissions.
- Apply an IAM password policy.
Additionally, which IAM policy provides full access to resources in it but not for IAM in AWS? The policy of Power User provides full access to all of the resources in IAM. This particular set of authorizations gives access to the resources and services of AWS but restricts any access to the management of groups and users.
Similarly, it is asked, how do I enable root user on AWS?
