    1. IAM authorizers–All requests are required to be signed using the AWS Version 4 signing process (also known as SigV4). The process uses your AWS access key and secret key to compute an HMAC signature using SHA-256. You can obtain these keys as an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user or by assuming an IAM role. The key information is added to the Authorization header, and behind the scenes, API Gateway takes that signed request, parses it, and determines whether or not the user who signed the request has the IAM permissions to invoke your API.

    1. Identity-based policies are attached to an IAM user, group, or role. These policies let you specify what that identity can do (its permissions). For example, you can attach the policy to the IAM user named John, stating that he is allowed to perform the Amazon EC2 RunInstances action. The policy could further state that John is allowed to get items from an Amazon DynamoDB table named MyCompany. You can also allow John to manage his own IAM security credentials. Identity-based policies can be managed or inline. Resource-based policies are attached to a resource. For example, you can attach resource-based policies to Amazon S3 buckets, Amazon SQS queues, and AWS Key Management Service encryption keys. For a list of services that support resource-based policies, see AWS Services That Work with IAM.

    1. The word "iambic" refers to the type of foot that is used, known as the iamb, which in English is an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable.

      Is there really a correct way of saying something? According to the Iambic Pentameter, there are more than a few ways of distinguishing the stressed syllable within a word. "Iambic" in particular refers to the first syllable pf a word as stressed. Well, what about those with non-similar accents? If a person from Los Angeles were to attempt to say the same word as someone from Virginia just in different accents, I ask which syllable would be stressed more than the other?
