    Security Guide

    For the security of your accounts and assets in Tencent Cloud, you are strongly recommended to complete all the configurations in the security guide.

    The security guide module provides basic CAM feature descriptions and necessary security operation guidance, such as binding MFA devices to root accounts, enabling account protection for root accounts, creating sub-accounts, and creating groups and adding sub-accounts.

    • Operation permission: the Bind MFA Device to Root Account and Enable Account Protection for Root Account features can only be done by the root account, while the other five features can be completed by all authorized users.
    • Feature status: each feature has two states: Not Completed and Completed. The root account user can view the status of each feature. Sub-accounts cannot view feature statuses.
    • Feature links: sub-accounts with permissions can view feature descriptions and links by clicking the triangle icon to the left of each guide item. The following figure shows the security guide module the root account sees.

    Binding MFA device to root account

    Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security protection provided by Tencent Cloud besides authentication with username and password. Currently, two types of MFA devices are supported: hardware MFA devices and virtual MFA devices.
    The root account user can click Bind MFA Device below the detailed description to enter Security Settings. For detailed directions, please see:

    Enabling account protection for root account

    Account protection includes login protection and operation protection. After login protection is enabled, you need to verify your identity through MFA when logging in to the Tencent Cloud Console. After operation protection is enabled, you need to verify your identity through MFA when performing sensitive operations.
    The root account user can click Enable Account Protection below the detailed description to enter Security Settings. For detailed directions, please see:

    Creating a sub-account

    Types of sub-account include sub-users, collaborators, and message recipients. You can create sub-accounts with different responsibilities to assist you according to your business needs.

    Creating a group and adding sub-accounts

    Creating, assigning permissions to, and adding users to user groups can help simplify permission management and review for sub-accounts.
    An authorized user can click Create Group below the detailed description to create a user group. For detailed directions, please see:

    Managing authorization policy

    CAM supports two types of policies: preset policies and custom policies.

    • A preset policy is a set of common permissions created and managed by Tencent Cloud at a coarse granularity. It is non-editable.
    • A custom policy is created by yourself and allows you to assign permissions at a finer granularity. It is editable.

    Assigning permissions to user groups or users simplifies the process of managing and reviewing the permissions of CAM users in your account.
    An authorized user can click Create Custom Policy below the detailed description to the Policies page. For detailed directions, please see:

    Enabling account protection for sub-account

    An authorized user can select a sub-account in the user list and enable login protection and operation protection on the Security tab in the user’s details page. MFA will then be required when the user logs in or performs sensitive operations. Currently, MFA modes supported for sub-accounts include virtual MFA device verification, hardware MFA device verification, and mobile verification code.
    An authorized user can click Enable Account Protection for Sub-Account below the detailed description to enter the User List page. For detailed directions, please see:

    Binding MFA device to sub-account

    An authorized user can select a sub-user or collaborator in the user list and enable MFA device protection on the Security tab in the user’s details page. The user will need to bind the MFA device upon next login.
    An authorized user can click Bind MFA Device to Sub-Account below the detailed description to enter the User List page. For detailed directions, please see:
