Generating Amazon S3 Pre-signed URLs with SSE-C (Part 4)

In Part 3 of this blog, we demonstrated how you can generate and consume pre-signed URLs using SSE-S3. In this blog, I will provide code examples to show how you can generate and consume pre-signed URLs using one of the more advanced options, namely SSE-C (server-side encryption with customer-provided encryption keys). The code samples assume the […]
