  1. Challenge

    Create a Public and Private Amazon S3 Bucket

    Download the two image files found at to your local machine.

    Create two S3 buckets.

    One bucket should be a private bucket named acg-testlab-private-<random>.

    The other bucket should be a public bucket named acg-testlab-public-<random>. The public bucket should have public access unblocked. For object ownership in the public bucket, select ACLs enabled and Bucket owner preferred.

    Upload the file cat1.jpg found in the lab files to both S3 buckets, and test whether you can access them

  2. Challenge

    Enable Versioning on the Public Bucket and Validate Access to Different Versions of Files with the Same Name

    Enable versioning the public bucket. Rename the image originally named cat2.jpg to cat1.jpg, and upload it to the public S3 bucket, which will be created as a new version of the original file. Using the URLs for the different versions of the image, confirm that you can access both images.
