Custom Policy to Allow AWS EC2 Snapshots

This article shows the Jason for a custom IAM policy to allow snapshots with the minimum required access. I bet it can be improved upon but this is pretty close.

{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
                "ec2:CreateSnapshot",
                "ec2:DeleteSnapshot",
                "ec2:Describe*",
                "ec2:CreateTags"
            ],
            "Resource": "*"
        }
    ]
}
