Rotating Secrets

Length: 00:05:05

Lesson Summary:

You can configure AWS Secrets Manager to automatically rotate the secret for a secured service or database. Secrets Manager already natively knows how to rotate secrets for supported Amazon RDS databases. However, Secrets Manager also can enable you to rotate secrets for other databases or third-party services. Because each service or database can have a unique way of configuring its secrets, Secrets Manager uses a Lambda function that you can customize to work with whatever database or service that you choose. You customize the Lambda function to implement the service-specific details of how to rotate a secret. This lesson walks the student through setting up the rotation of secrets from the AWS Management Console.
