In the S3 console, underneath the Access column, what does the public badge next to the bucket name indicate?

  • All objects within this bucket are assigned public access and could be readable or writable by anyone on the internet. Ensure no sensitive data is being publicly shared within this bucket.
  • All objects within this bucket are writable, which means that the public internet has the ability to upload any file directly to your S3 bucket. Your S3 bucket could be used to serve malware.
  • Some objects within this bucket are assigned public access. Verify that any publicly shared objects within this bucket contain no sensitive data.
  • Objects within this bucket can be made public, if the ACL on that object is set to allow everyone access. Private buckets do not allow you to set public permissions on any object.
