Connect S3 Bucket via Vpc Endpoint
We have two public and private subnets within the vpc. One of the public Ec2 instances wants to access the S3 bucket. Ec2 public instance will first go to the internet first then Amazon S3 and get the object. But if your private Ec2 wants to get some object from S3. It won’t be able to do so, because it has private IP.
An application running on EC2 instances processes sensitive information stored on Amazon S3. The information is accessed over the Internet. You are concerned that the Internet connectivity to Amazon S3 is a security risk in that scenario you can go with VPC Endpoint.
- Search endpoint in you aws search box.

- Select service category as AWS services and seach for S3 gateway.
- Select your vpc and route table you want to add endpoint.
