In this video, the instructor discusses things to remember about Cognito.
- [Instructor] Let's now review the things…I'd like you to remember about Cognito.…Remember this workflow,…particularly the part that exchanges the Cognito token…for AWS credentials.…This process is the same…used by other SAML compatible corporate identity providers…such as Tivoli and Active Directory.…So the Security Token Service, STS, is used a lot…even if you never interact with it directly.…Other than the authentication workflow,…remember that user pools are mostly used…for authentication and user profiles within your app…and identity pools, as in federated identities,…are for authenticated users…that need to receive a temporary…limited access set of credentials into AWS Services.…
Multifactor authentication is supported.…Using AWS SNS service,…you can have Cognito send a text message…to further validate a user's identity prior to login.…Thanks to AWS Lambda,…you can trigger events and actions…based on logins and registrations…such as alerts or adding records to a database…or sending emails as needed by your application.…
