File Transfers Have a Much Bigger Impact On Time-To-Market Than You Think

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Thu, May 14, 2015 @ 05:57 PM


A growing number of businesses are finding it imperative to get certain products out in the market FAST. To beat extremely tight deadlines, most of them employ IT systems to accelerate business processes. Whenever these processes require file exchanges across departments, cities, or continents, file transfer systems start to play a crucial role. And that role doesn't just involve moving files from point A to point B.

What Is A Cipher?

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sun, Apr 26, 2015 @ 10:56 PM


Overview

The strength of an encryption largely depends on two components: 1) the cipher and 2) the length of the key. We already discussed key lengths in an older post. So today, let's talk about the other component.

What is a Digital Signature?

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sat, Mar 28, 2015 @ 06:38 PM


Overview

Digital signatures help enforce security during data transfers. They're mainly responsible for establishing authentication, data integrity, and non-repudiation. Today, we'll be talking about the basic concepts behind digital signatures, where they're used, how they work, and why they're always an integral part of highly secure file transfers.

Symmetric vs Asymmetric Encryption

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sun, Mar 15, 2015 @ 02:35 AM

Overview

Secure file transfer protocols generally employ a combination of symmetric and asymmetric encryption to preserve the confidentiality of data while in transit. So why the need for two kinds of encryption? In this post, we take a closer look at the main functions of symmetric and asymmetric encryption, their strengths, their weaknesses, and why we'd prefer having both.

What Port Does SFTP Use?

Posted by Van Glass on Mon, Jan 12, 2015 @ 07:01 PM

SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol), not to be confused with FTPS (Secure FTP), runs on top of the SSH (Secure Shell) protocol and by default uses port 22 for communications.  An SFTP server may however be configured to listen on a different port other than the default port.  Listening on a port other than the default port is a common tactic used to reduce the number of attacks, in particular scripted brute-force password attacks.

Setting Up SFTP Public Key Authentication On The Command Line

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Wed, Jan 07, 2015 @ 02:44 AM


Overview

SFTP provides an alternative method for client authentication. It's called SFTP public key authentication. This method allows users to login to your SFTP service without entering a password and is often employed for automated file transfers. In this post, we'll walk you through the process of setting up this kind of authentication on the command line. It's really easier to do this on a GUI-based interface but if you simply love doing things on the terminal, this post is for you.

How To Set Up An SFTP Reverse Proxy

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Tue, Dec 16, 2014 @ 01:15 AM


Overview

An SFTP reverse proxy adds another layer of security to SFTP services. In addition to SFTP's ability to encrypt data in transit and provide 2-factor authentication, an SFTP reverse proxy brings in several other security-related benefits such as hiding user credentials and the identities of your internal servers. An SFTP reverse proxy can be easy to set up and this post will show you how.
