As Amazon S3 has become more widely used the thorny issue of sharing files has become more of an issue. Sharing files on S3 can be complex and can involve public buckets, IAM Policies and temp URL’s. This complexity has often lead to companies setting buckets to public to enable access which in turn has led to its own issues in terms of breaches or unauthorised access.Continue reading “How To Easily Create Private Password Protected Amazon S3 Links And Folders”by

Yesterday’s Blog post demonstrated how the File Fabric Audit events could be stored on a HyperLedger Fabric BlockChain solution. Today’s post compliments that and shows how each file’s integrity can be validated by a checksum.
The purpose of this post is to outline how the Enterprise File Fabric can be used with a BlockChain HyperLedger solution to provide guaranteed non tamper audit reports for the corporate file estate.
Blockchain is a distributed databased for maintaining records (called blocks) in which the data in the block cannot be altered retrospectively. HyperLedger is one of a number of projects that use blockchain at its core and is a specification for how a trusted network should work. In this example we use Fabric but there are others such as Sawtooth Lake, Corda R3 and Iroha.
The Enterprise File Fabric provides a unified multi-cloud content repository for all company data, whether stored on-cloud or on-premises. The solution supports over 60s storage endpoints including object storage such Amazon S3, IBM COS, Google Storage, Microsoft Azure, as well as traditional on-premises storage such as Windows Filers, NAS / SAN, and other more common storage solutions such as Box, DropBox, Office 365 etc.
