What Is An SFTP Key?

Updated by John Carl Villanueva on


Overview

What good is an encrypted data transfer if the information it protects still falls into the wrong hands in the end? SFTP security 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.
