Best way to authenticate boto3??

I'm building a Python based desktop application to work with some AWS services. The application has a front-end built with the kivy framework and AWS boto3 being the primary tool in the back-end. So my aim is to access services such as AWS IoT & DynamoDB using this application.
The question is, according to AWS standards, we've three modes of authentication for boto3 to access AWS servers.
1. X.509 certificates
2. IAM Authentication
3. Cognito Identities
X.509 certificates are mostly preferred for embedded devices and not in applications.
That leaves me with 2 options, either IAM or Cognito.
I'm not convinced with the idea of hard coding credentials into our code.
In such a case which one of these is a better way of authentication and why?
Do we really have a problem if we hard-code IAM credentials in our application code?
Hi @Vipin-I-V ,
This seems to be an interesting project.
Please share the development here...
I was thinking of something similar, but not for gaming. Won't it be cool to have the Ctrl, Cmd & Alt keys as pedals? Please share your thoughts & insights.
Hi @mkgrmAbhinand ,
Did your issue resolve?
@mkgrmabhinand Hi, It Looks like you didn't install the NodeJS on your computer, or didn't add the PATH correctly in the environment variables.
Could you confirm that you installed the Node JS in your computer from the .exe or .msi installation files?
If not and if you want to run Node-RED, you need to install recommended NodeJS version 14.x and you can download the version here .
Thanks for sharing @rafitc99 . Glad to know that it was solved.
