secret access key --> secret key
To get your access key ID and secret access key
... We recommend that you use IAM access keys instead of AWS root account access keys.
IAM lets you securely control access to AWS services and resources in your AWS account.
... Open the IAM console.
From the navigation menu, click Users.
Select your IAM user name.
Click User Actions, and then click Manage Access Keys.
Click Create Access Key.
Your keys will look something like this:
Access key ID example: AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE
Secret access key example: wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY
Click Download Credentials, and store the keys in a secure location.
*** Your secret key will no longer be available through the AWS Management Console;
... the only copy.
... never email it.
Do not share it outside your organization,
even if an inquiry appears to come from AWS or Amazon.com.
[ like the private key of ssh key-pair , the secret key only appeared once when created
and will not be stored on amazon web site ]
