#StackBounty: How do you create a new user to login with for Amazon Ubuntu EC2?

Bounty: 50

I really don’t like using my root user with no password to use for logging in an Amazon EC2 ubuntu instance. I would like to login without the certificate if possible. I had seen a tutorial where they said you can, but they didn’t explain how to do it.

adduser newuser
gpasswd -a user sudo

That’s as far as I got. Creating a newuser username and giving them sudo priviledges. I know there has to be something I am missing for linking this to a login.
