Installation and Setup

Setting up the ThreatKey's AWS integration is straightforward. Begin by connecting your AWS account with ThreatKey on the integration page within the ThreatKey platform. Follow the step-by-step setup process to boost the security of your AWS environment.


To connect an AWS account, you can either:

  • Manually create AWS IAM roles with the appropriate permissions.
  • Use the CloudFormation-based connection wizard to setup AWS IAM roles. (Link to CloudFormation template)

Both enrollment flows guide you through the steps to create two AWS IAM roles in your AWS account.

  • A read-only role, which is by default called ThreatKeyAudit . This role is used to evaluate AWS asset details.
  • A role with the AdministratorAccess policy, which is by default called ThreatKey . This role is used to set up both the read-only role and CloudTrail event forwarding.


As of 2021/11/05, the permissions required for the two roles are as follows:


  • Enhanced Security: Proactively identify and rectify potential security risks and misconfigurations in your AWS environment.
  • Efficient Remediation: Manage and track remediation efforts effectively, ensuring swift and successful resolution of security issues.
  • Informed Decision-Making: Leverage detailed reports and analytics to guide strategic decisions and foster continuous security improvement.
  • Streamlined Compliance: Simplify compliance efforts with comprehensive reporting and analytics.

By integrating ThreatKey with your AWS environment, you are taking a significant step towards a more secure, efficient, and resilient cloud infrastructure.
