security connection provided by SAP XI for FTP

Hi All,

In many implementations Business requirement is to security connection provided by SAP XI for FTP and to third-party system.

Could you pls let me know the steps which i need to take care/ or shall i use the same File adaptor for this or any special adaptor i need to use.

Pls give me some points how we can implement and give me some links to get the information please.

GnuPG is a free tool for secure communication based on public keys how i can i use this in SAP XI

Thanks in advance

Also keep in mind that GPG is designed for a different use case than FTPS. GPG is used to encrypt files; FTPS uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to establish an encrypted connection between two TCP/IP ports (i.e. two sockets)...

If you encrypt a file on XI using GPG, then you still need to transfer it to the other system. You can do this via plain FTP (since the file is already encrypted), or FTPS (why not?). If you use FTPS, you don't need to encrypt the files transferred from XI to the other system, since the transport channel is secure.

If you really really want to implement GPG/PGP (same thing, different licence), then you can always look into Java libraries like bouncycastle and write an adapter module...

Hope this helps to provide some context.

Sascha
