Interesting AWS API Calls

For a project at work, I needed to highlight users who have access to IAM Actions that are considered “privileged”. There not being a good record of those, I decided to create one.

AWS Interesting API Calls is a yaml file in github that contains a list of high risk calls and some data about them. I’ve also written a python module that can parse the file in various ways.

My hope is that by making this a public github repository, the AWS Security community can crowd-source the curation of this list.
