Private HTTP Server for Amazon S3 content.
Amazon S3 provides a public HTTP interface for accessing content, but what if you don't want publicly accessible files?
private_s3_httpd exposes a private HTTP endpoint for an Amazon S3 bucket so you can controll access to the data. This is ideal for accessing S3 via HTTP api as a backend data service, or for local http browsing of a private s3 bucket, or for use behind another authentication service (like oauth2_proxy) to secure access.
Usage of bin/private_s3_httpd: -bucket string S3 bucket name -listen string address:port to listen on. (default ":8080") -log-requests log HTTP requests (default true) -region string AWS S3 Region (default "us-east-1") -s3-endpoint string alternate http://address for accessing s3 (for configuring with minio.io)
Configuring S3 Credentials
Before using, ensure that you've configured credentials appropriately. The best way to configure credentials is to use the
~/.aws/credentials file, which might look like:
[default] aws_access_key_id = AKID1234567890 aws_secret_access_key = MY-SECRET-KEY
You can learn more about the credentials file from this blog post.
Alternatively, you can set the following environment variables:
