Amazon have lately been doing an exercise where they check your public S3 buckets and then raise a notification (and email) to an account to notify of these public S3 buckets.

It's quite useful (it has highlighted one bucket I had with inappropriate permissions) and I'd like to have it run on a regular basis.

But there's no documentation about this "public bucket check" process.

Does anyone know if there's any way I can access / control this functionality? (I'd like to run it once a month or something).

  • Trusted Advisor does this if you have an appropriate support plan. If you're not paying support you don't get access to that check. – Tim Jul 21 '17 at 0:03

Trusted Advisor does this if you have an appropriate support plan, business and above I think. If you're not paying support you don't get access to that check.

As per Tim's answer, this is a Trusted Adviser "security recommendation". I couldn't find any public documentation of the individual Trusted Adviser recommendation, but when looking in the actual Trusted Adviser console, you can see this:

trusted adviser s3 recommendation

It appears a "business" level support plan is the minimum to get access to this recommendation.
