Introducing Fine-grained access controls with job-scoped IAM Roles and Integration with AWS Lake Formation for Apache Spark and Apache Hive on Amazon EMR on EC2 Clusters

We are excited to launch two new features that help enforce access controls with Amazon EMR on EC2 clusters (EMR Clusters). These features are supported with jobs that are submitted to the cluster using the EMR Steps API. First is Runtime Role with EMR Steps. A Runtime Role is an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that you associate with an EMR Step. An EMR Step uses this role to access AWS resources. The second is integration with AWS Lake Formation to apply table and column-level access controls for Apache Spark and Apache Hive jobs with EMR Steps.
