B2Bi should support the use of credentials from AWS EC2 instance profiles to enable access to AWS S3 buckets
B2B Integrator 6.0.1 provides an adapter for AWS S3. This adapter requires the use of AWS access keys (awss3.accesskey & awss3.secretkey) for access to S3 buckets. This is not a practical approach for automated batch processes since the AWS access keys require regular rotation.
For the case of running B2Bi on AWS EC2 virtual machines, the AWS recommended pattern would be to use AWS EC2 instance profiles to provide the credentials needed to access S3 buckets. Please see the following links from Amazon:
The default constructor in the AWS SDK already supports searching for credentials from the instance profile.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
To enable file transfers between internal business systems running in the AWS cloud and external partners it is necessary for automated processes to be able to read and write files from/to AWS S3 buckets, without any requirement for manual updating of access keys or complex home-grown processing to rotate access keys.
