I've been investigating AWS solutions as of late. I made a startling discovery. The AWS API is capable of reading information off of individual files within instances. This raises an alarm in my head. I'm starting my research, but I am open to other thoughts and ideas. Many of the solutions run off of the AWS API. Is there a way to limit the power of the API? Any thoughts from security professionals about the risk of AWS taking information off of instances? Any way to limit or remove the AWS API? Thoughts are appreciated.
