Talk Overview

So you’re half way through your first hack-a-thon, and are firing up your very first server in the… cloud. Pretty neat stuff! That to-do list is coming along nicely.

When you created those… AWS Access Keys… did policies sound boring, and full-access sound way more fun? Did you save them in a file on your Desktop? Are you wondering exactly how many minutes it takes for an access key uploaded to Github to be exploited?

Well I have a solution for you. I’ve made a thing. It makes creating _temporary_ access keys easy, stores them properly, but still lets you use them! If it’s your very first project, or you are in a team of 100, you no longer need to throw money down the bitcoin Mines of Moria.
