       apt-transport-s3  - it's a package which contains apt transport ('plugin') allowing apt to
       fetch files stored in private repositories held on AWS S3.

Bucket name

       According to the S3 bucket naming convention to make it working with this  transport  over
       TLS  bucket  name  can  NOT  contain dots in it. More information about it can be found at

AWS Credentials

       To access repositories held on S3 it is compulsory to have correct  permissions  into  the
       bucket  where repository is located and those permissions have to be reflected in at least
       one of below two places.

       IAM Roles default place where  S3  transport  is  looking  for  credentials  allowing  for
       fetching files from S3 bucket

       /etc/apt/s3auth.conf credentials configuration file in ini format without section headers

URI format

       URI  format is in standard apt format only difference with S3 transport is that instead of
       HTTP(s), cdrom or FTP protocol s3 should be used
       ex.  deb [trusted=yes] s3://bucket_name/ testing main contrib non-free

EXAMPLE /etc/apt/s3auth.conf

        AccessKeyId = myaccesskey
        SecretAccessKey = mysecrectkey
        Region = eu-west-1
        Endpoint = ''
