Create fine-grained session permissions using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) managed policies -
I've read this three times and I still don't understand what it does. Help?
Sure, I'd be happy to help you with that.
You use AWS STS (Simple Token Service) to assume a role and it's associated policies. So - you might call STS to assume
a role with "AdministratorAccess" policy in another account.
When you do this, you have an option to also add a "session role" on the fly - think of it as an addendum to the role.
Example, you might assume that "AdministratorAccess" role, but add in "No IAM access, please". This is handy because it

Exposing a port on a running docker container
View gist:d33bb54d2f98f9e5eb21

So - that was just complex enough that it might be nice to document and share it.

So - I am using docker and --link to expose a redis database to only the apps that use it. Which (as of now) is fine, so long as those apps are on the same host. But - I wanted to use the redis 'slaveof' command to quickly replicate the data to another redis running on a different host. Yes - I could grab the db from disk, scp, and restore. But it's handy to be able to quickly spawn a new copy elsewhere. I could not simply restart the original redis container exposing ports, because it is prod with people reading/writing to it.

So - The solution that works is: Run a new container, exposing the port you want, linked to the original container - and use socat to bridge the internal link to the external port.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
