Company B is launching a new game app for mobile devices. Users will log into the game
using their existing social media account to streamline data capture. Company B would like to
directly save player data and scoring information from the mobile app to a DynamoDS table
named Score Data When a user saves their game the progress data will be stored to the
Game state S3 bucket. What is the best approach for storing data to DynamoDB and S3?

A.
Use an EC2 Instance that is launched with an EC2 role providing access to the Score Data
DynamoDB table and the GameState S3 bucket that communicates with the mobile app via web
services.

B.
Use temporary security credentials that assume a role providing access to the Score Data
DynamoDB table and the Game State S3 bucket using web identity federation.

C.
Use Login with Amazon allowing users to sign in with an Amazon account providing the mobile
app with access to the Score Data DynamoDB table and the Game State S3 bucket.

D.
Use an IAM user with access credentials assigned a role providing access to the Score Data
DynamoDB table and the Game State S3 bucket for distribution with the mobile app.

Explanation:
The requirements state “Users will log into the game using their existing social media account
to streamline data capture.” This is what Cognito is used for, ie Web Identity Federation.
Amazon also recommend to “build your app so that it requests temporary AWS security
credentials dynamically when needed using web identity federation.”
