a simple python command line tool to create secret S3 links.

s3-secret-url url is a simple script that lists out the contents of a bucket and asks you which one you’d like to make a secret link for and how long ( in seconds ) that you’d like that link to last for.

Note: the links are secret, not secure so this is best used in situations in which encryption is overkill and you can trust the end user isn’t going to share the data and you’re cool with the risk of unencrypted transmission and possible leakage of the content.

It’s primitive at the moment and it’s lacking a setup script, but I just wanted to cobble it together so that I could give my accountant some files in a reasonably quick manner.
