Known Issues



Latent Buckets

Sometimes after you delete a bucket, the operation to list all your buckets will continue returning the bucket you deleted, even though it no longer exists.


S3 does not support the HTTP 100-Continue status as described in RFC 2616, section 8.2.3.


S3 ETags calculate an MD5 hash on the object data. According to section 13.3.3 of RFC 2616, this is a weak reference. To be a strong reference, S3 would also have to consider metadata and other headers in the ETag.

SOAP SSL Authentication

S3 allows SOAP authentication to be performed over non-SSL connections. SOAP authentication should only be accepted over SSL.
