Alternatively you can use an IAM role for authentication instead of an access key and secret, for Amazon EKS only:

If you don't already have an Amazon Kinesis Data Stream, create one by following the instructions at Creating and Updating Data Streams.
Amazon Resource Name (ARN)
A fully qualified ARN is required to uniquely identify the Amazon Kinesis Stream.
This ARN can be obtained directly from the overview page of the Kinesis Stream. It typically has the following format:
Alternatively, one can obtain the ARN of a Kinesis Stream by using the AWS CLI. The following command
