Specifying SFTP Algorithms

Certain cipher algorithms allow for variable sized keys, while others only allow a specific key size. The length of the key correlates with the strength of that algorithm; larger keys are harder to break than shorter keys. EFT supports the ciphers shown in the SFTP Settings dialog box.

To specify encryption algorithms (applies to inbound only)

  1. Open the SFTP Settings dialog box.

  2. In the Allowed ciphers list, clear or select the check boxes to specify which ciphers you want to allow for encrypting SFTP sessions.

  3. Click OK to close the dialog box.

  4. Click Apply to save the changes on EFT. EFT tries each selected algorithm with the client until one is agreed upon.

Refer to Creating an SSH Key Pair for instructions for creating key pairs, if necessary.
