AWS Account Connection Methods
Cross-account IAM roles allow customers to securely grant access to AWS resources in their account to a third party, like Antimetal while retaining the ability to control and audit who is accessing your AWS account. Cross-account roles reduce the amount of sensitive information APN Partners need to store for their customers so that they can focus on their product instead of managing keys.
The creation of an IAM role means that Antimetal will never require sensitive access credentials, account logins, passwords, or other information.
