IAM Access Keys

IAM Access Keys

Users in AWS are listed under AWS -> IAM -> Users

While creating Users, by default, a set of Access Keys are provisioned for the user just created. This can be viewed in from the Users -> Security Credentials tab

But the point to be noted here is that if we are rotating the keys as per the security compliance guidelines, we cannot generate more than two. On trying to create access keys, while two of them already exists we get the below error

If you observe, 'Create Access Keys' is disabled and along with that the maximum limit alert has also been raised

This alert is raised as AWS has set max limit on Access Keys against Users as 2.
