Users interface with customer identity and access management features like sign up and sign in on a daily basis. But these functionalities go even deeper: services like identity federation and various security measures work behind the scenes to offer a seamless, secure experience that scales to millions of users around the globe.

Amazon Cognito is one of the key IAM services on AWS that offers secure access control functions across your AWS environment. In this course, we’ll start by learning the basics of Cognito by understanding how it works and features you can leverage.

Next, we explore IAM features like Users, User Pools, Identity Pools, and Groups. We’ll even compare them to one another in order to understand how they interact with each other on a practical level.

All of these lessons are accompanied by detailed hands-on labs with step-by-step instructions to help you get a feel for how these services work in the real world. At the end of this course, you’ll be proficient in operating Amazon Cognito to manage user identities on an enterprise scale.
