How to register AUTHENTON#1 FIDO2 Key with "AWS Identity Access"?


AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that provides secure access to AWS resources. It also supports AUTHENTON#1 FIDO2  security keys for multi-factor authentication.
Here are the steps to register a AUTHENTON#1 FIDO2  key with AWS IAM:
  1. Purchase a AUTHENTON#1 FIDO2  security key that is compatible with AWS IAM.

  2. Sign in to your AWS IAM account using your username and password.

  3. In the AWS Management Console, navigate to the "IAM Dashboard" and click on "Security credentials" in the left-hand menu.

  4. Click on the "Manage" button next to "Assigned MFA device".

  5. Click on the "Virtual MFA device" button.

  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up a virtual MFA device. You will be asked to scan a QR code with your phone or tablet to set up the virtual MFA device.

  7. Once the virtual MFA device is set up, click on the "Show secret key" button and save the QR code image and the secret key in a secure location.

  8. Insert your AUTHENTON#1 FIDO2  security key into a USB port on your device.

  9. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the registration process. This typically involves pressing a button on the key to confirm.

  10. Once your AUTHENTON#1 FIDO2  key is registered, you can use it for multi-factor authentication when accessing your AWS IAM account.

By registering a AUTHENTON#1 FIDO2  key with AWS IAM, you are adding an extra layer of security to your account, making it much more difficult for unauthorized users to gain access.

AUTHENTON#1 FIDO2  security keys provide strong multi-factor authentication that cannot be easily hacked or phished, making them an excellent choice for securing your online accounts and data.
