Amazon S3 - Access Logging
28 Jun 2010
I was mapping some subdomains to various Amazon S3
buckets today. I decided to use the new Amazon S3 interface available in the Amazon Console
, instead of S3Fox for a change.
I was setting the permissions for a new bucket and I noticed the logging feature for each bucket. For some reason this has escaped me. I see in the developers area that S3 Logging has been around for years
Anyways, you can set access logging for each bucket. Seems like a perfect feature to help deal with security concerns about storing data in the clouds. The logging feature is a great tool if you are required keep detailed logs of who accessed your data.
