get-bucket-encryption

Description

Returns the default encryption configuration for an Amazon S3 bucket. For information about the Amazon S3 default encryption feature, see Amazon S3 Default Bucket Encryption .

To use this operation, you must have permission to perform the s3:GetEncryptionConfiguration action. The bucket owner has this permission by default. The bucket owner can grant this permission to others. For more information about permissions, see Permissions Related to Bucket Subresource Operations and Managing Access Permissions to Your Amazon S3 Resources .

The following operations are related to GetBucketEncryption :

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-bucket-encryption
--bucket <value>
[--expected-bucket-owner <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--bucket (string)

The name of the bucket from which the server-side encryption configuration is retrieved.

--expected-bucket-owner (string)

The account id of the expected bucket owner. If the bucket is owned by a different account, the request will fail with an HTTP 403 (Access Denied) error.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To retrieve the server-side encryption configuration for a bucket

The following get-bucket-encryption example retrieves the server-side encryption configuration for the bucket my-bucket.

aws s3api get-bucket-encryption \
    --bucket my-bucket

Output:

{
    "ServerSideEncryptionConfiguration": {
        "Rules": [
            {
                "ApplyServerSideEncryptionByDefault": {
                    "SSEAlgorithm": "AES256"
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}

Output

ServerSideEncryptionConfiguration -> (structure)

Specifies the default server-side-encryption configuration.

Rules -> (list)

Container for information about a particular server-side encryption configuration rule.

(structure)

Specifies the default server-side encryption configuration.

ApplyServerSideEncryptionByDefault -> (structure)

Specifies the default server-side encryption to apply to new objects in the bucket. If a PUT Object request doesn't specify any server-side encryption, this default encryption will be applied.

SSEAlgorithm -> (string)

Server-side encryption algorithm to use for the default encryption.

KMSMasterKeyID -> (string)

AWS Key Management Service (KMS) customer master key ID to use for the default encryption. This parameter is allowed if and only if SSEAlgorithm is set to aws:kms .

You can specify the key ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CMK. However, if you are using encryption with cross-account operations, you must use a fully qualified CMK ARN. For more information, see Using encryption for cross-account operations .

For example:
  • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
  • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

Warning

Amazon S3 only supports symmetric CMKs and not asymmetric CMKs. For more information, see Using Symmetric and Asymmetric Keys in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide .
