S3 : Hide Bucket name and Key path in the URL

See original GitHub issue

When I use the method generate_presigned_url the resulting url contains my bucket name and path to the object and I am quite paranoid of exposing them!

Is there a way to generate a temp url that will not have the path and bucket name ?

PS: I also tried generate_url [boto] but in vain.

Thank you Kylenap for your response.

I am worried about the privacy! with temp url anyone can know my bucket hierarchies which I don’t want to expose. Is there a way to generated a url with bucket name and path encrypted ?

Sounds good. However, I do not think even that would be possible to implement in general because the implementation must follow the S3 spec. According to the spec, we must sign with the actual name of the bucket and key name. If the S3 spec allowed for this, then we could add the ability to obfuscate the bucket/object in the generated presigned url but that is not possible as of now.
