Description

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) allows setting up a relational database in the cloud. IAM database authentication allows for password-free authentication to RDS databases. We detected {AwsRdsDbCluster.Engine} cluster {AwsRdsDbCluster} is configured with IAM authentication disabled.

    It is recommended to enable IAM database authentication in RDS MySQL or PostgreSQL clusters in order to authenticate safely without the need of a password.
