Terminal login toolkit for Amazon Web Services (AWS) enforcing and simplifying use of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).

Project description

Work secure using MFA according to best practices, and efficiently with AWS terminal tools like aws cli, aws-shell, terraform, etc.

Highly opinionated Amazon Web Services (AWS) terminal login toolkit, focused on enforcing and simplifying AWS Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).

Written in Python 3, backwards compatible with Python 2, thanks to futures!

Currently being heavily tested in production against AWS multi-account setup (Well-Architected Framework) on macOS High Sierra.

Feels most at home using virtualenv, of course.

How it works:

  • Stores your AWS IAM credential profile in ~/.qrmr/credentials.ini;
  • Prompts for MFA OTP code;
  • Uses AWS STS to retrieve and store fresh SessionToken and temporary Access Key ID and Secret Access Key using your credential profile.

Near future:

  • Manage ~/.aws/credentials and ~/.aws/config files
  • Unit Tests :)

Because you probably just want to start using it:

Installation of QRMR:

pip install qrmr

Setup of AWS Credentials:

qrmr setup

Refreshing your SessionToken and temporary keys:

qrmr refresh

Be cool:

aws s3 ls

REMEMBER: set environment variable AWS_PROFILE in your shell or virtualenv to make life easier:

export AWS_PROFILE=iam_user_name

Find out more features by running:
