As an alternative to the AWS method of authentication, you can use the HCP method. You might choose to do this, for example, if you’re writing an application that uses both the S3 compatible API and the REST API. With the REST API, HCP supports only its own authentication method.

With HCP authentication, the format of the URLs you use in S3 compatible requests differs from the format used with AWS authentication.

This this section of the Help describes the URLs you can use in S3 compatible requests when using HCP authentication. It also explains how to provide credentials or request anonymous access with this authentication method.
