How To Create My AWS ‘Access Key ID’ and ‘Secret Access Key’

In order to establish a secure connection between your KeyVault and Blox Live, unique AWS access keys must be generated.

Generate unique AWS access keys

  1. Go to your AWS account
  2. In the search bar, type ‘IAM’
  3. Click on ‘Users’
  4. Click on ‘Add User’ in order to create a new user
  5. Choose a ‘ username’

We suggest choosing a name that will be easy to remember.

  6. You can skip this one if you’d like and just click on ‘Next: Review’

This is a very important part of the security process. Since Blox is non-custodial, we won’t be able to help you reproduce these keys in case you lose them. So please make sure to store the information in a safe location.
