Edge Rules: How to Hide S3 Headers

In this article, we will be addressing how to hide headers from your Amazon S3 origin. With your origin being behind CDN as a proxy  - there is no way for end users to get information about where your origin is hosted - unless that origin passes specific headers like Amazon S3 does. With this easy Edge Rule, you can ensure full anonymity of your hosting through settings within StackPath CDN.

Skill Level: Easy, one line directives, no complex configuration
