    • Directory bucket overview – You can see the Amazon Web Services Region, Availability Zone, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), and creation date for the bucket.

    • Default encryption – Amazon S3 applies server-side encryption with Amazon S3 managed keys (SSE-S3) as the base level of encryption for all S3 buckets. For directory buckets, this setting can't be modified. Amazon S3 encrypts an object before saving it to a disk and decrypts the object when you download it. For more information, see Setting default server-side encryption behavior for Amazon S3 buckets.
