This video provides an overview of the Cognito service.
- [Instructor] AWS Cognito is the tool of choice…for solving the problem of user registration, login,…and managing their profiles and preferences.…This is common to most applications these days.…If it wasn't for a tool like Cognito,…you'll be forced to write a lot of logic…into your application for user connection management,…two-factor authentication, social logins,…and several more identity-related features…that Cognito provides right out of the box.…But the main reason I'm showing you Cognito here…is because it's a really good identity provider…as well as an identity broker.…
As an identity provider,…it does everything we have mentioned so far.…As a broker, it allows your application…to take advantage of social logins…such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google,…and map those logins to a user profile…to be used within your application.…One very important feature as well…is the ability to trade Cognito credentials…for AWS temporary credentials.…This allows your Cognito users to access S3,…to download or upload files,…
