External Authentication with AWS (Amazon Web Services)

Discussion created by dtcgnet on Apr 21, 2016

There is a system in beta testing from Amazon Web Services (AWS) (search engine nod) called Amazon Cognito.


It is described in a blog here:

New – Your User Pools for Amazon Cognito | AWS Blog


My questions:

1. Could this be used to create a group which FileMaker Server could use for external authentication purposes?

2. Will this new technology allow us to provide some sort of true Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?


To me, this looks like a way to provide External Authentication options to small groups quickly, easily and cheaply. Has anyone tried it yet?
