As you may recall, Ionic Security released its first version of Ionic Data Trust Services for Cloud in July 2018, which offers a simple way for developers using the Java SDK to invoke Ionic Security’s protection and policy functionality as data moves to and from cloud storage in AWS S3 and Google GCS. This addresses use cases such as migrating from on-premise storage to the cloud, and protecting data across multi-cloud environments– all while providing granular cryptographic control.
Ionic Security recently released new SDKs for AWS (0.9.0) and GCS (0.9.1). New and updated features include:
- Full feature parity between Ionic Data Trust for AWS S3 and GCS SDKs
- Support for uploads taking create key requests as arguments
- Support for downloads returning get key responses
- Improved the exceptions thrown on key request denials
- Metadata injection feature has been removed from S3
- Support for setting client metadata for GCS
- xml files have been updated
Ionic Developers Updates
Whenever a new release comes out, The DevX team also updates Ionic Developers, our portal that provides centralized access to all developer resources. The team also takes the opportunity improve the site, introduce new examples and add new features. For this release, Developer portal 1.5.3 introduces new branding of Ionic Data Trust Services for AWS S3 and Ionic Data Trust Services for Google Cloud Storage (GCS).
The Ionic Developers portal also introduces improved code samples, which are located on Ionic Security’s GitHub repositories. A new code example, Transfer Manager for AWS, uses Amazon’s TransferManagerBuilder class to easily transfer local objects to and from AWS S3. The pom.xml files have been updated for better maven integration. Directions for obtaining the javadocs are available on the ‘Setup’ pages.
I hope you’ll explore the new Ionic Data Trust for AWS S3 and GCS SDKs and start encrypting the cloud.
Until next time,
