Introducing S3 Auth - The Secure SSO Portal for AWS S3

Hosting a static site? Having difficulties with authentication?

S3 Auth provides secure external access to your organization’s AWS S3 buckets. Never has it been easier to grant clients, stakeholders, and partners granular access to individual S3 buckets within your AWS account. Users sign up either through email or a SSO provider such as Google or Facebook. Account administrators then assign users to buckets and voilà – users through the S3 Auth portal can securely view a curated selection of S3 hosted websites, web applications, and files.
