Paul Moreno shows how to federate AWS IAM permissions, roles, and users with a directory service such as LDAP or Active Directory with an Identity Provider. Using the open-source IdP software Shibboleth, he describes how this uses the AWS Security Token Service to reduce the need for long lived credentials for both the Web Console and CLI.
