Login as IAM user using SDK

0 votes

I am using AWS SDK for Java and had been finding suitable APIs to login as an IAM User, which I am not able to. I am able to pass the access and secret keys to login using the SDK, but my use case is to validate the user and the password given by the IAM User. Can anyone help me on how to log in as an IAM user using AWS SDK?

The IAM username and password can only be used with the Amazon management console and their forums

My best solution so far is using a database where I mirror the iam user name and aws secret access key. With secret key encrypted ofc. But this still has the following drawbacks

  • The secret aws key is stored in the database (even if it is not in clear text, it still is there)
  • The clients would have the access keys of a user with the rights to list iam users and read access to the database.
So, there is no workaround for this i guess
