Need support for AWS Security Token Service (AWS STS) when using CDA

We are attempting to use CDA  to write to an AWS S3 bucket.  
We had initial setup issues but resolved them.  
We were trying to request some information from the client about obtaining the SECRET KEY, and were told that  process was not allowed because of some internal security concerns.
We were informed that AWS provides AWS Security Token Service (AWS STS) as a web service that enables you to request temporary, limited-privilege credentials for users.  
The CDA utility GDKUTIL appeared to meet our needs.

I spent some time trying to determine if this option works with using the CDA utility to read/write to a bucket and tried to determine if the assembler API supports this function. 

After being unable to find any documentation, I opened a case with IBM to determine if this was possible.  I was informed that this process does not currently exist and would need to request this support.
