Amazon Kendra adds user tokens for secure search
[Amazon Kendra](/kendra/) is a highly accurate and easy to use intelligent search service powered by machine learning. Starting today, AWS customers using Amazon Kendra can easily validate the identity of individual users, as well as user groups who perform searches with the addition of secure search tokens. By adding user tokens for secure search, performing access-based filtered searches in Amazon Kendra is simplified. Customers can now securely pass user access information in the query payload, instead of using attribute filters to accomplish this. By leveraging this feature, Amazon Kendra can validate the token information and automatically apply it to the search results for accurate and secure access-based filtering.
