Compliance Frameworks


Bucket Policy governs the access permissions on AWS S3 resources. This policy checks whether the S3 bucket is configured with bucket policy with ""Effect"":""Allow"", ""Principal"":""*"" and ""Action"":""*"". This enables the bucket to be accessed by anyone, and if proper conditions are not added it could be exposed to the Internet. It was detected that the S3 bucket {AwsS3Bucket} grants public access on all actions. It is a best practice to grant limited access to specific authenticated users.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    It is recommended to edit the bucket policy to grant access only to specific authenticated users.
