Generate IAM certs for users on AWS

  1. openssl genrsa 1024 > username-env-pk.pem
    1. pk stands for private key
  2. openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -sha1 -days 365 -key username-env-pk.pem -outform PEM > username-env-cert.pem
    1. lasts for 365
  3. Paste username-env-cert.pem in to the AWS Signing Certificates area for that user
  4. Give user both username-env-pk.pem and username-env-cert.pem, and wish them luck
