Alibaba Cloud AccessKey pair is a secure password that is designed to access Alibaba Cloud resources by calling API operations. You can use the AccessKey pair to sign API requests and pass the security authentication in Log Service.

An AccessKey pair contains an AccessKey ID and an AccessKey secret. They are generated and used together. Every Alibaba Cloud account can create multiple AccessKey pairs. You can activate, deactivate, or delete the generated AccessKey pairs based on your business requirements.

You can create and manage AccessKey pairs on the Security Management page in the Alibaba Cloud Management Console. The AccessKey pairs are the keys for Alibaba Cloud to verify the API requests. Keep your AccessKey pairs confidential. If an AccessKey pair is leaked, we recommend that you immediately delete it and generate another AccessKey pair.
