Generates environment variables for MFA auth against AWS CLI. Python 3.3+.

Project description

# aws-mfa-auth
Command-line tool for MFA authentication against the AWS CLI. Only generates environment variables, no state or configuration (MFA serial can optionally be added to AWS config).

Will by default ask for MFA token, and grab MFA device serial from the default profile in `~/.aws/config`.

Profile, serial and token can also be passed on the command line.

You must have a valid authentication for AWS CLI already set up for the STS call to succeed.
