AK/SK Authentication

When you use an API gateway to send requests to underlying services, the requests are signed using the AK and SK.


AK: indicates the unique ID of the secret access key. AK is used together with SK to obtain an encrypted signature for a request.

SK: indicates the secret access key used together with the access key ID to sign requests. AK and SK can be used together to identify a request sender to prevent the request from being modified.
