Amazon S3 Object Ownership ahora puede deshabilitar las listas de control de acceso para simplificar la administración de acceso a los datos en S3

Amazon S3 presenta una nueva configuración, propietario del bucket aplicado de S3 Object Ownership, que deshabilita las listas de control de acceso (ACL), lo que simplifica la administración del acceso para los datos almacenados en S3. Cuando se aplica esta configuración a nivel de bucket, todos los objetos de un bucket de S3 pertenecen al propietario del bucket y las ACL ya no se utilizan para otorgar permisos. Como resultado, el acceso a los datos se basa en políticas, incluidas las políticas de AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) aplicadas a las identidades de IAM, políticas de sesión, políticas de puntos de acceso y buckets de Amazon S3 y políticas de punto de enlace de Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). Esta configuración se aplica tanto a los objetos nuevos como a los existentes en un bucket y puede controlar el acceso a esta configuración mediante las políticas de IAM. Con la nueva configuración de S3 Object Ownership, puede revisar, administrar y modificar fácilmente el acceso a los conjuntos de datos compartidos en Amazon S3 simplemente a través de políticas.
