Error in using s3 integration

User 2256 | 9/17/2015, 3:24:45 AM

Hi all,

I have recently started using graphlab and after following quite a few tutorials on using SFrame, I decided to use it with my amazon s3 instance.

My approach was as follows:

import graphlab as gl'xxxxxxxxxx', 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx') data = gl.SFrame.read_csv('s3://to/my/folder')

But I consistently get the error:

IOError: Cannot open s3://sensus/E2/ProtocolReport/0038acb3-7649-46fe-84ee-f2b77d561c7f.json for read. Fail to download from s3://sensus/E2/ProtocolReport/0038acb3-7649-46fe-84ee-f2b77d561c7f.json. [SSL: CERTIFICATEVERIFYFAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:590)

I am quite sure that my AWS credentials are correct.

I then googled and found that unlike the dato tutorial mentioned here, I still get the same error. I was wondering is the way to access s3 through graphlab have changed? Is there a way around it?

This is the issue surfaces in past 10 days or so. You may find detailed information from the following link:

To summarize: 1. awscli uses requests module which uses certifi module, and requests module by default uses latest certifi module 2. Python module certifi recently changes behavior to not include cross-signed roots, which Amazon uses

There are a few work arounds: 1. downgrade awscli to version 1.6.2 2. force install older version of certifi: 'pip install certifi==2015.04.28)

Let me know if the workaround works for you.

Thanks! Ping

Hi Ping, The workaround didn't work for me, so instead of trying to pull data from s3 to my own machine, I did it onto the ec2 and that solved the issues. Thanks for your suggestions though! :-)
