What Is An SFTP Key?

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Tue, Dec 09, 2014 @ 02:20 AM


Overview

What good is an encrypted data transfer if the information it protects still falls into the wrong hands in the end? SFTP is best known for its ability to encrypt data while in transit. But while data-in-motion encryption can secure confidential information as it traverses the network, encryption can't prevent an impostor from carrying out the download himself. For that purpose, you'll want your users to authenticate with the right password and the right SFTP key.

 

 

In this post, we'll talk about the role of SFTP keys (a.k.a. private keys) in the overall security of the SFTP protocol, how it works, where to use it, and other bits of information regarding this important element of SFTP.

In this post, we're going to introduce you to the SFTP command line and show you how it can be quite a handy tool as long as you're willing to roll up your sleeves and get dirty.

Setting Up An SFTP Server

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Mon, Dec 08, 2014 @ 12:53 AM


Overview

I've been going over our posts lately and just realised that, while we've managed to put together a decent collection of information regarding SFTP file transfers, we actually don't have an article that teaches how to set up an SFTP server. I'm sure some of you have been resourceful enough to go through the documentation and sift through all the relevant pages in there. But for those who just want one place for it all, this is the article for you.

For this tutorial, I'll be using JSCAPE MFT Server, our managed file transfer server that supports SFTP as well as a number of other secure file transfer protocols. Since this managed file transfer server is built from Java, it can run on different platforms, including Windows (32 and 64 bit), Linux, Solaris, AIX, IBM z/OS, and Mac OS X. 

If you want to follow this tutorial step by step, you may download a free evaluation edition of JSCAPE MFT Server by clicking the button below. Don't forget to select the installer that corresponds to your operating system.

On the other hand, if you're just here to read, then please proceed.
