Keycloak is an open-source identity and access management (IAM) solution that offers centralized authentication, authorization, and user management for applications. It simplifies authentication, access control, and user administration, providing enhanced security and user management features. Keycloak supports Single Sign-On (SSO), identity federation, user registration, role-based access control (RBAC), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and authorization services. It integrates with existing systems, provides an admin console and management APIs, and supports high availability and scalability for large-scale applications. With Keycloak, developers can implement secure and seamless user authentication and access management in their applications.
The Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) provided are created following official installation steps, allowing users to perform additional customizations using official documentation. This approach ensures flexibility and avoids being tied to any specific AMI vendor’s automation processes. Users have the freedom to tailor the configurations according to their specific requirements and leverage the comprehensive documentation provided.
The highly automated AMIs, regularly updated with the latest OS and security patches, require minimal to no customization before being used in building production environments.
