How to access S3 buckets without using AWS Access Key and Secret Key

My question relates to the security features available in R Studio Server Pro, which is called the "Enhanced Security" in the brochure.

In a standard set up I would access S3 data from R with the aws.s3 library and the AWS Access Key and AWS Secret Key. However, I would like to use a different type of authentication.

I know that in principle R cannot access S3 in any other way, but I am wondering if the if the Pro version of R Studio Server can authenticate against AWS and then enable access to S3 without hard coding the Keys in the R code.
