Ensure access keys are rotated every 90 days or less


Access keys consist of an access key ID and secret access key, which are used to sign programmatic requests that you make to AWS. AWS users need their own access keys to make programmatic calls to AWS from the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), Tools for Windows PowerShell, the AWS SDKs, or direct HTTP calls using the APIs for individual AWS services. It is recommended that all access keys be regularly rotated.


Perform the following to rotate access keys:
1. Login to the AWS Management Console

2. Click Services

3. Click IAM

4. Click on Users

5. Click on Security Credentials

6. As an Administrator

  • Click on Make Inactive for keys that have not been rotated in 90 Days

7. As an IAM User

  • Click on Make Inactive or Delete for keys which have not been rotated or used in 90 Days

8. Click on Create Access Key

9. Update programmatic call with new Access Key credentials
