I was mapping some subdomains to various Amazon S3 buckets today.  I decided to use the new Amazon S3 interface available in the Amazon Console, instead of S3Fox for a change.

I was setting the permissions for a new bucket and I noticed the logging feature for each bucket.  For some reason this has escaped me.  I see in the developers area that S3 Logging has been around for years?

Anyways, you can set access logging for each bucket. Seems like a perfect feature to help deal with security concerns about storing data in the clouds.  The logging feature is a great tool if you are required keep detailed logs of who accessed your data.
