    For SSE-S3, it only encrypts the object data, not object metadata. So you might have to update the “Metadata Encryption” in your list. More information here:

    In my opinion, as long as you know the basic difference between these three options, you’re good to go. Another important thing to know is the difference of different types of CMKs in the AWS KMS.
