Secure FTP in SAP XI


I have seen that there is an FTP adapter in SAP XI. We currently have guidelines to use Secure FTP (SFTP) for FTP communication over an 'unsecure' network.

We would like at least 128bit encryption, preferably 1024bit key.

Can SAP XI also support this (and how)? Or is there a possibility with third party adapters?

Best regards

    At this time, I do not believe XI supports secured FTP. XI only supports the FTP application within the TCP/IP stack.

    Secured FTP is proprietary in its implementation, even though the encryption algorithms are standard.

    In order to implement secured FTP, I believe an adapter would have to be developed, specific to the secured FTP application you are using.
