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.

If you need any help , please let us know.
