How do I re-secure an AWS account with a compromised secret key?

Background Information

What is the standard process for re-securing an AWS account? After you regenerate an AWS private key, what will happen to your RightScale account? Will you be able to see and manage the machines created with the previous secret key? Will these machines need to be rebooted?

 


Answer

You can regenerate your secret key at http://aws.amazon.com and update it in your RightScale account settings. You will not disrupt active instances, and security will be restored.
