Auth command

s3 auth [<key> <secret>]

Gets and saves your Amazon authentication details for future invocations of the program. The Access Key ID and Secret Access Key can be supplied as two parameters on the command line (which is useful in batch files) or omitted from the command line and entered interactively. The authentication details are then saved in your Windows user profile so that they don't need to be entered on future invocations of the program.

If entering your details interactively (by running 's3 auth' with no parameters), a password can optionally be supplied which will be used to encrypt your Secret Access Key using 128-bit TripleDES before saving it to your user profile. The downside of course is that you will be prompted to enter the password on every invocation.
