How To Set Up Automated AS2 File Transfers

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Mon, May 10, 2021 @ 03:05 AM

Overview

In an earlier quickstart guide to setting up an AS2 server, we featured a manual method for sending EDI messages. Because EDI transactions are best carried out automatically, we thought it would be a good idea to show you how to implement real-time transactions on the same solution we used in that post.

AS2 (applicability statement 2) uses public keys and private keys to encrypt files being transferred between IP addresses. With AS2, security, authentication, message integrity and privacy are ensured with encryption, digital certificates and nonrepudiation techniques. AS2 provides greater security for your EDI data than standard FTP, supporting synchronous and asynchronous MDN (message disposition notification) and digital signatures.

Plus, with JSCAPE's AS2 server you can send files regardless of file size and content type.

Overview

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