How can I securely store AWS credentials on personal machines?
Everybody in our team requires AWS security credentials for doing administrative tasks (credentials are separated by role). These credentials are usually stored in plaintext in some config files on disk. I think this is very insecure, especially considering that credentials are distributed over team members, end up in backup etc.
I would much prefer storing these credentials in encrypted form (similar to ssh keys, for example). Is there some automated way of doing so? Or do I need to hack up some bash script that uses for example openssl to encrypt data?
There is much information on the web regarding how to secure credentials on an EC2 instance. There's even this Amazon IAM roles functionality, but it also applies only to EC2.
