To get you Amazon AWS access key and secret key:

  2. On the upper right hand corner, click on your name and click Security Credentials
  3. Next expand the Access Keys section and click Create New Access Key
  4. Copy your access key and secret key to a secret location. Alternatively, you can click the download button to get the key in a CSV file. Be sure to store this in a secure location. Once this step is complete, you will not be able to retreive the secret key. If you lose your key, you can deactivate and delete a key to create a new one. You may have up to 4 keys at once.
