Each S3 bucket and file has an associated Access Control List (ACL) with grantees and permissions.
A canned ACL is a predefined set of grantees and permissions that can be set when creating a bucket or file.

Below you find a step by step guide, if you prefer you can watch our Managing Amazon S3 Canned ACL video tutorial.
