Create a key pair for at least one client user and assign that user permission to create buckets. This is a special powerful permission that is not automatically given to every user. Assign it only to users you want to allow to create buckets.
(Optional) To enable connection to the S3 service over HTTPS, install an S3 certificate.

This guide shows how to use the Boto 3 SDK for python and the S3cmd command line client, but you can use any client you want. Read our guidelines for using:
Boto 3 and S3cmd support HTTP as well as HTTPS. Some other clients may support HTTPS only.

You can now add objects to the bucket and perform other operations.
