AWS Permissions Guidelines

Warning: Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) v2.4 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

Pivotal recommends that you minimize the use of master account credentials by creating an IAM role and instance profile with the minimum required EC2, VPC, and EBS credentials.

In addition, Pivotal recommends that you follow AWS account security best practices such as disabling root keys, using multi-factor authentication on the root account, and using CloudTrail for auditing API actions.

For more Amazon-specific best practices, refer to the following Amazon documentation:
