Access Control

When creating a new bucket, you should apply the following tools and settings to help ensure that your Oort DSS resources are protected.

Access Keys

If you have employees that require access to Oort, don't share root user credentials with them. You can create an individual access key for each user so that the user can make programmatic requests to work with resources in your account. You can have a maximum of ten access keys.
Access keys consist of two parts: an access key ID (for example, AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE) and a secret access key (for example, wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY). Like a user name and password, you must use both the access key ID and secret access key together to authenticate your requests.

Block Public Access

Oort DSS recommends that you disable all public access, but before applying any of these settings, ensure that your applications will work correctly without public access.
