AWS IAM vs OAuth.io: What are the differences?

AWS IAM: Securely control access to AWS services and resources for your users. AWS Identity and Access Management; OAuth.io: OAuth That Just Works. OAuth is a protocol that aimed to provide a single secure recipe to manage authorizations. It is now used by almost every web application. However, 30+ different implementations coexist. OAuth.io fixes this massive problem by acting as a universal adapter, thanks to a robust API. With OAuth.io integrating OAuth takes minutes instead of hours or days.

AWS IAM and OAuth.io are primarily classified as "Cloud Access Management" and "User Management and Authentication" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by AWS IAM are:

  • Manage IAM users and their access - You can create users in IAM, assign them individual security credentials (i.e., access keys, passwords, and Multi-Factor Authentication devices) or request temporary security credentials to provide users access to AWS services and resources.
  • Manage IAM roles and their permissions - You can create roles in IAM, and manage permissions to control which operations can be performed by the entity, or AWS service, that assumes the role. You can also define which entity is allowed to assume the role.
  • Manage federated users and their permissions - You can enable identity federation to allow existing identities (e.g. users) from your corporate directory or from a 3rd party such as Login with Amazon, Facebook, and Google to access the AWS Management Console, to call AWS APIs, and to access resources, without the need to create an IAM user for each identity.

On the other hand, OAuth.io provides the following key features:

  • Quickly integrate API providers
  • More than 100 providers available
  • Secured encrypted API

"Centralized powerful permissions based access" is the top reason why over 21 developers like AWS IAM, while over 3 developers mention "SDK's" as the leading cause for choosing OAuth.io.
