Flume Agent Secrets Exposure with AWS IAM

New Contributor

Hello,

The flume agent 1.9 config file cre-site.xml has proerty of fs.s3a.secret.key which exposes secret key in the server. This config file calls for an IAM user whose secret keys are put in the xml file. If the EC2 instance Iam Role has the correct permission, is there a way in flume 1-9 to recognize a IAM AWS Role besides an IAM user? This will help us avoid putting secrets in the xml file.

 

Thanks

Arun
