Description

The Cloud init template creates an admin account with a password, which is against standard best practices in cloud providers.
Read the section under passwd: http://cloudinit.readthedocs.io/en/latest/topics/examples.html#including-users-and-groups
Remember user data can be seen by anyone, for example EC2 stores this with the instance for later editing/reference.
