      Description

      We would like to increase our use of S3 buckets to provide data to IGB client application via HTTP.

      However, some people might be tempted to download the entire contents of a bucket using this same mechanism, which would be costly.

      Let's investigate: Is there a way that we could restrict HTTP requests to IGB only for an S3 bucket?

      For example, could we create some kind of filtering function or setting that would "greenlight" requests that meet some criteria, such as: the application making the request is IGB.

            A new question for Chirag Chandrahas Shetty:

            To ensure that code running on a given host EC2, can we attach am IAM policy to the EC2 that would allow it to access the S3? This way, the responsibility for controlling what the EC2 can access would be given to the EC2 configuration itself. I think this would be simpler. Please let me know if this is possible, to your knowledge.

            FYI: I applied the above policy to the S3 bucket "krizek-lab" which is hosting some data in the ChIP-Seq quickload site.

            Ann Loraine Yes, it should work with the IAM policy and attaching an IAM policy would be much simpler.
            Just add the following policy to the S3 bucket so that IBG can access the S3 bucket and attach AmazonS3ReadOnlyAccess policy to the ec2 instance.

            {
                "Version": "2008-10-17",
                "Statement": [
                    {
                        "Effect": "Allow",
                        "Principal": "*",
                        "Action": "s3:GetObject",
                        "Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::loraine-lab/*",
                        "Condition": {
                            "StringLike": {
                                "aws:UserAgent": "*IGB*"
                            }
                        }
                    }
                ]
            }
