Beyond FTP Encryption Screen
This dialog allows you to administer the
private keys associated with Beyond FTP’s encryption service. These
keys apply to every algorithm. Only 56-bit DES is currently
available outside of North America. The stronger TwoFish and AES (Rijndael)
algorithms may be added by customers in North America. APT is
applying for export licensing, and expects to be able to deliver
strong encryption to a broader market in the near future.
Each Beyond FTP server or client may be assigned a unique key,
generated from the key phrase entered in this dialog. Since there is
no exchange of keys, you must also store the key phrase for any
remote servers that you will call, or that will call your server.

Keys may also be assigned to standard FTP servers. In this case,
Beyond FTP servers and clients that exchange files via an FTP server
must use the same key. You may also create multiple address book
entries for a single FTP site, and assign each a different key. This
would allow multiple clients to share a single public file space on
the FTP server without being able to actually view each other’s
files. Click here for more information on standard FTP server
Encryption is enabled on a server by server basis based on the
selection of the encryption field.
