This Learning Activity uses the AWS Web Identity Federation Playground to examine the inner workings of Web Identity Federation. After selecting an identity provider (Amazon), students will be able to view request and response headers, including access keys provided during web identity federation. The Web Identity Federation Playground will give students an in-depth look at the authentication and authorization taking place during Web Identity Federation. Additionally, students will be able to work through a real-world scenario, using a Python script to interact with Web Identity Federation.
