Host Designation

Wasabi supports both the path-style and virtual-style requests available with AWS S3. A different host name is required (for example, versus Wasabi recommends using path-style requests as shown in all examples in this guide (for example, because the path-style offers the greatest flexibility in bucket names, avoiding domain name issues.

Error Responses

Where possible, Wasabi utilizes the exact error responses given by AWS S3. Some additional error codes are provided for additional functionality in Wasabi.

TCP Error Codes

Wasabi also supports the following TCP error codes:

  • Unexpected EOF
  • Broken Pipe
  • Connection reset by Peer

“Always Consistent” Feature

Rather than providing “always consistent” operations, AWS S3 operations are “strong consistency.” When you perform an AWS S3 operation, the results that follow may not reflect the previous operation.

Wasabi provides an “always consistent” view of all operations. Any operation following another will have the same expected result. This eliminates the special programming needed to wait for completion of a prior operation. As an example, after a DELETE on an object, it is common to perform a HEAD operation to check that the deletion was successful. Wasabi will always return a successful HEAD after the DELETE operation.

Authenticating Requests

Wasabi supports autonomous and signature versions 2 and 4 compatible with AWS S3, for both headers and query parameters. Generally, the signature version 4 offers better security, but requires more compute time on both the client and server because of the overhead calculating the SHA256 hash. If performance time is critical to your application, use the version 2 signing and check the calculated MD5 (returned as the ETag header for an object) for data integrity.

For version 4 signing requests, the region used for Wasabi signing requests is always “us-east-1” which is the default AWS S3 region.

Wasabi does not support signature signing for browser based uploads and HTML form requests because this is used for web page operations. (Web page operations are not currently supported on Wasabi).

For signature version 2, Wasabi added subresource keys that are specified as query parameters on the request. The specific subresource keys are:

  • append
  • compose
  • force_delete=true

which are query parameters given for the PutObject and DeleteBucket operations. When using signature version 2, you need to include these in the calculation of the signing.

Not Supported in Wasabi

SOAPAWS S3 has deprecated support for SOAP. As a result, Wasabi does not support any SOAP operations.
