GETTING SECURITY CREDENTIALS

Sending any type of request to Amazon S3, you need security credentials of your Amazon S3 account, so follow these steps:

Step1: Go to your <profile-name> -> My Security Credentials

Step2: Click on “Continue to Security credentials” -> Access Keys(access key ID and secret access key)

Step3: Click on “Create Access Key” and download or save your .csv file securely.

WHERE SHOULD YOU KEEP YOUR CREDENTIALS?

Step1: In your home directory, make a new folder name by “.aws”

Step2: Create a new file name by “credentials” in “.aws” folder.

Step3: Keep your credentials in this because by default Amazon finds its security keys at this location only.
