    Second Vendor – Public Key Authentication optimization

    Second Vendor – Public Key Authentication optimization in Version v2020.6.27.0

    As mentioned in a previous blog post we’ve added a second SFTP vendor in LimagitoX File Mover

    Vendor 2 is also able to logon using Public Key Authentication. To achieve this, the SFTP Client (our File Mover in this case) needs to add your Private Key (and Private Key Password).

    Quite some types of private key files can be used. It is important to use the correct file extension.

    We are also able to use private keys within certificate file types like:

    • .cer, .crt, .p7b, or .pem
    • .p12 or .pfx (PKCS #12)

    Note: If the PFX contains multiple certificates, the 1st certificate in the PFX is loaded.

    A private key file with .ppk as extention will be threaded as a PuTTy key.

    Also the following private key file types are supported:

    • KCS1, PKCS8, PEM, JWK, PVK, etc.

    Second SFTP Vendor option was added in LimagitoX File Mover

    A second SFTP vendor was added in LimagitoX File Mover version v2020.6.21.0. This second SFTP vendor is also based in the USA and has a long history with providing API’s for many internet protocols. The reason we did this is because there are quite some different SFTP servers out there and it seems we couldn’t cover them all. With a second vendor we try to minimize this.

    Switching can be done on the fly. Default is still the original vendor (Vendor 1 – SB) which we are using for quite some time now. This new option is available under the ‘Common’ tab of your SFTP setup. Feedback experience about using the new vendor would be much appreciated.

    With our second vendor (Vendor 2 – CK) we are able to get more debug information in case of problems. You’ll need to enable ‘Add Control Information to log’ to achieve this.

    If you need any help , please let us know.

    How-To use Implicit vs Explicit SSL/TLS in LimagitoX File Mover

    When we speak about “SSL“, it usually means “implicit” SSL/TLS. The client must negotiate an SSL/TLS session immediately upon connecting to the server’s port, before then reading the server’s already encrypted greeting or sending any encrypted commands. You’ll need to enable ‘Use Implicit SSL/TLS’ in the setup.

    When we speak about “TLS”, it usually wants “explicit” SSL/TLS. The client must not negotiate an SSL/TLS session immediately upon connecting to the server’s port. It must read the server’s unencrypted greeting first, and then later it can send an appropriate STARTTLS command (if the server advertises support for it) to ask for permission to then negotiate an SSL/TLS session before sending any further encrypted commands. You’ll need to enable ‘Use Explicit SSL/TLS’ in the setup.

    Default SSL/TLS Implicit vs Explicit Server Settings:

    POP3:
    Port 110: Explicit-TLS
    Port 995: Implicit-SSL

    IMAP:
    Port 143: Explicit-TLS
    Port 993: Implicit-SSL

    SMTP:
    Port 25: Unencrypted but could support Explicit-TLS
    Port 465: Implicit-SSL
    Port 587: Explicit-TLS
