Security FTP


#1

Hello,

are there plans to implement a more secure way to transfer files than ftp? For example SFTP or FTPS?

Thanks,
Joachim


#2

Similarly HTTPS :question:


#3

Implementation of these features are in progress and will be provided as a separate security plug in.


#4

Dates?


#5

I don’t know about availability dates for HTTPS. However, it’s quite easy to roll your own secret-key based security over FTP: scavenge a CBC-based cipher from any piece of open source code (you’ll easily find tiny implementations of 3DES for instance), and perform encryption just before wip_write() / decryption just after wip_read().

Notice also that in many cases, a private APN in GPRS provides a sufficient level of security.


#6

is an SFTP connection already possible at this moment? I can’t find it in the documentation.

thanks,
Stefan
