Create a Profile

This allows us to store the Access Key ID and Secret Key in a ready to use profile.

aws configure --profile myNewProfile

After, we can call the profile to ask what info can be gathered about the user.

aws sts get-caller-identity --profile myNewProfile


AWS S3 is used for storage

aws s3 ls --profile myNewProfile

aws s3 ls s3://myNewBucket/ --profile myNewProfile

Copy a file from the bucket to local dir

aws s3 cp s3://myNewBucket/lol.txt ./ --profile myNewProfile

Don't forget to check for open buckets!


We can gather information about our instances to include public IPs and security groups

aws ec2 describe-instances --profile myNewProfile
aws ec2 describe-instances --profile myNewProfile | jq '.Reservations[] | .Instances[] .PublicIpAddress'

Create a keypair to be used in EC2

aws ec2 create-key-pair --profile m4lwhere --key-name m4lwhere --query 'KeyMaterial' --output text > ~/.ssh/m4lwhere.pem
