S3 access logs are log files generated by Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) that capture detailed information about access and requests made to S3 buckets. These logs provide valuable insights into who accessed the buckets, what operations were performed, and when they occurred. S3 access logs can be enabled for individual buckets and are stored in another S3 bucket designated to store the logs.
