Control: 1.6 Ensure access keys are rotated every 90 days or less

Description

An access key consists of an access key ID and a secret, which are used to sign programmatic requests that you make to Alibaba Cloud. RAM users need their own access keys to make programmatic calls to Alibaba Cloud from the Alibaba Cloud SDKs, CLIs, or direct HTTP/HTTPS calls using the APIs for individual Alibaba Cloud services. It is recommended that all access keys be regularly rotated.
